With the Penguin Classics Cover Generator, Anything Can be a Classic

Remember when Penguin Classics published A Canticle for Leibowitz?

Thanks to Nicholas Love’s Penguin Classics cover generator, now you can do just that.

This site lets you create your own Penguin Classic covers in either the Oxford World Classics or the Penguin Classics look. All you have to do is upload an image and set the author and title, and then click the button.

This is cool, but I’d rather see covers in the classic classic design (the one with a single color on the top and bottom thirds of the cover, and white in between).  Those covers would be a lot simpler, leaving less room to be clever.

BTW, if you are interested, there are many excellent spoof covers in this Twitter thread.

What you see at left is my own creation; what would you like to make with this tool?

Top cover ever was VALIANT COMICS SOLAR#10. The black hole cover. (All black.)
Runner up was the second edition print run with tbe white holecover. (All white, of course.)
Lots of thought and design skill at work there.
