When it comes to inspiring cover art, there's little to beat the best Penguin book covers. In recent years, the publisher has given a succession of classic books a fresh look, creating an (often controversial) reimagined cover for many beloved stories.
Now it's given a face-lift to the Legends from the Ancient North series that inspired J R R Tolkien when he was penning The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings. Designed by Petra Borner, the colourful cover graphics have given the books a new lease of life, highlighting the incredible creatures and heroes showcased throughout the pages in a way that will resonate with a modern audience.
We can only hope that the orange circles are stickers, though, otherwise the beautiful artwork may be a little ruined!
