Illustrator/Designer,Olly Moss, created these illustrations for video games in the vein of the Penguins Classics paperback book series.

These inspired the folks at Something Awful to create their own. A sample can be seen >here<.

Love the old look. I think I like these covers more than the original.

i concur. less is definitely more. there's just something about the simplicity of old school design. as if the limitations they had in production further emphasized the point in the most straight forward way. these days, people are more lured to filling the whole page with excess that sometimes is hard to see the point of it all. suffice it to say, it looks darn pretty, but what the hell are ya trying to sell me on?
