    There’s a certain gravitas about a Penguin Classic. I mean, any idiot can publish a book, but not all of them are approved by the cutest flightless bird in the southern hemisphere. Well now, thanks to Nicholas Love’s neat cover generator, you can create both Penguin Classics and Oxford World Classics covers for any book (or movie, or concept) your heart desires, avian gatekeepers be damned!

    So why not spend some time paying tribute to Brad Pitt’s greatest role…

    Or celebrating your own literary accomplishments…

    Or just giving a current classic a contemporary makeover!

    We did it! We fixed the publishing industry!
