Gallery 1988 in L.A. is currently exhibiting covers to classic books... but not the covers you've seen lining shelves at Barnes & Noble. Forty-five artists have re-imagined the art with amazing results. I love Anne Benjamin's Pride and Prejudice, above, but The Wonderful Wizard of Oz by Dirk Fowler is also awesome and James Flames' The Velveteen Rabbit gives me chills. You can check it out online, but if you're in the L.A.-area, the Melrose exhibition runs through April 30.
