While we would never advise you to judge a book by its cover, as art people we know the power of a strong image. So, in keeping with our Literary Week theme, here are the UGallery artworks that we think would make A+ covers for famous books.
The Count of Monte Christo by Alexandre Dumas:
"'Oh, father,' said Albert, smiling, 'you clearly do not know the Count of Monte Cristo. He finds satisfaction elsewhere than in the things of this world and does not aspire to any honours, taking only those that can fit on his passport.'"
The Raven by Edgar Allan Poe:
"Ghastly grim and ancient raven wandering from the Nightly shore —
Tell me what thy lordly name is on the Night's Plutonian shore!"
Quoth the Raven, 'Nevermore.'"
