Harland Miller’s Penguin Classics-Inspired Art


Cheeky painter Harland Miller creates irreverent reinterpretations of Penguin Classics. The paintings, many of which he compiled in a 2007 Rizzoli book, often prod at a deeper truth about the author or text, or just plain make fun — like his oh-so-appropriate titular approximation of every Hemingway novel ever and his stab at imagining Poe’s delusional mindset. Plus, as A Continuous Lean points out, Miller is a model in a new Dunhill campaign, which only reminds everyone how much they want to spend that thousand dollars on his art instead of on fancy-manly accessories. Indulge yourself, and click through for a gallery of Miller’s Penguin-inspired artworks, but be warned: profanity abounds.
