We’re suckers for great book covers here at Flavorpill — not to mention great book cover redesigns — but this morning we’re swooning for a good cause. Belgian graphic design studio beshart has rallied 100 artists from 28 countries to redesign the book covers of the greatest novels of all time (according to The Observer‘s 2003 list of the 100 Greatest Novels of All Time) in order to raise awareness for the problem of illiteracy. The project, DoeDeMee, which we were tipped off to by Largehearted Boy, has collected a slew of amazing new covers, which you can buy as posters here. Click through to see some of our favorite redesigns, and then head here to see the entire set.
