Belgian graphic design studio beshart recently united 100 artists from 28 countries in a unique co-creation project, together redesigning the covers for 100 classics novels. The aim? To raise awareness for the problem of illiteracy.
The result is the most gorgeous collection of beautifully illustrated book covers, each with an artists individual interpretation of a particular novel. But rather than just showcase these lovely images, we decided to make things a bit more fun and develop a quiz to test your knowledge on classic literature too. Excited? Course you are!
Some are harder than others so to help you out, we've added the opening sentence of every book featured. Let us know your score in the comments box below...
