Vintage Penguin-style covers for Tarantino movies

Sharm Murugiah's created book cover designs for each of Tarantino's movies

With Quentin Tarantino firmly back in the spotlight thanks to the Oscar-winning revenge Western Django Unchained, it's a great time to play around with the genre-splicing director's legacy.

And Sharm Murugiah (opens in new tab), a graphic designer living and working in London, has done just that, combining two of our favourite things - classic Penguin book covers (opens in new tab) and Tarantino films. The director's whole back catologue is covered, from True Romance and Reservoir Dogs right through to Inglourious Basterds and Django Unchained. It's just a shame these books are imaginary - we'd love to buy them!

You can see more of Murugiah's movie-related illustrations - including brilliant takes on Saturday Night Fever, The Departed and Metropolis - 0n his website (opens in new tab).
