Artists Remix Classic Book Covers


For the past seven years, Katie Cromwell and Jensen Carp at Gallery 1988 have been showcasing pop culture-themed artwork to a new generation of LA residents. This month Cromwell and Carp are exhibiting (and selling) 45 limited-edition posters inspired by novels we all know and love, curated by OMGPosters and Rob Jones. At Flavorpill, we can appreciate a good remix, so we’ve picked our favorites from the lot for your viewing pleasure. From James Flames’ homage to the Velveteen Rabbit (complete with cute floppy ears and a leaky eye) to Big Brother’s penetrating gaze (from Doublenaut’s tribute to Nineteen Eighty-Four), there’s something that will appeal to a wide range of bibliophiles.

If you’re in LA, we strongly suggest you stop over at Gallery 1988 on Melrose and LaBrea before the exhibition closes at the end of this month. If you’re not but still want to see more pictures, check out Marina Galperina’s post at Animal New York.
