Recovering the Classics

Maud Marks Library is Recovering the Classics and you could win a copy of a classic book with YOUR art on the front!

Maud Marks Library is hosting a “design-a-thon” from November 1~December 19, 2016. As part of a National Initiative Recovering the Classics is encouraging artists, designers and illustrators to redesign classic book covers. Why? Because "Sadly, many of the greatest classics in the public domain are left with poorly designed or auto-generated covers that fail to capture what makes these books exciting and inspiring to us…"
