Eye-Popping Editions of Classic Philosophy

Sometimes you pick up a philosophy book with a dull, banal cover and you project the same blandess into the content of the book. Thankfully, David Pearson has designed the new "Great Ideas" collection from Penguin,which reprints dozens of classic works of philosophy and politics. Nietzsche might have been a cocky bastard, but the cover surely makes you want to find out why!

Check out these designs by David Pearson:

Great Ideas Volume I

Great Ideas Volume II

Great Journeys

some fiction has eye-popping new design too - like kafka's metamorphosis, which now has a comic-strip cover!

We have finally freed ourselves from placing recycled Renaissance paintings on every classic text!
