Penguin Classics Covers Would Make Great Band-Aids

In breaking summer publishing news, editor and freelance writer Michelle Witte has proven that Penguin Classics covers would make great band-aids.

Last week Penguin Classics unveiled a super cool limited-edition set of skateboard decks featuring cover art from Penguin Classics’ titles. You can actually win one of the skateboard decks if you submit a picture of a Penguin Classic and a skateboard. Follow this link for more information about the contest.

Inspired by the contest, Witte designed a set of band-aids with some hilarious choices of classic titles on the front. Here’s more from the post: “Skateboards are boring. But bandaids with Penguin Classic covers? Yes, please! So to make a pitch to the people at Penguin Classics, I offer my suggestions for extremely awesome bandaids featuring some of the great Classics book covers.”
