Lovely, Indeed...

Penguin Books is reissuing a series of classic books. Ho hum, you say. But wait, there's more...this series will have covers which are designed by modern-day comic artists. The first is Voltaire's Candide, with a cover design by the inimitable Chris Ware. Quite nice.

(Via Gapers Block, where Veronica Bond writes, "Maybe, just this one time, it's okay to judge a book by its cover." Actually, for me, the cover is always an integral part of a book. Bookslut would undoubtedly agree, based on their monthly column "Judging a Book By Its Cover.")
