Fab Read: Ruben Toledo Illustrates Three Classics

While his wife Isabel is busy dressing Michelle Obama, Ruben Toledo is dressing books. The famous artist, who once illustrated Nina Garcia's The Little Black Book of Style, has now done it again for the deluxe editions of three classic novels: Pride & Prejudice by Jane Austen ($11), Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte ($11), and The Scarlet Letter by Nathaniel Hawthorne ($11). You can pre-order now, but they will be available Aug. 25. I adore Ruben's quirky art and I haven't read the classics in a while, so . . .

I agree, cherryblossom, I think classic books should keep a “classic cover“. But I like these covers.

I am a huge fan of Ruben Toledo's work. I have a few past Nordstrom catalog covers pinned to my inspirational art wall. Love all three covers.

you know; in one sense I agree with cherryblossom that I prefer classics to have a classic feel and classic style illustration; but at the same time I kind of love the very modern, cartoonish; almost humourous take on the bleak seriousness of these novels...

i dunno, i like it, but i dont really like it for the books, i mean personally i think classics should keep a classic feel, so that the reader knows what to imagine in their mind, rather than being confused by the modern covers and the juxtaposing classical stories, it just doesnt make a whole lot of cohesive sense to me.
