Some of those books are in the public domain. Maybe they could set something up with Lulu and arrange for prints of the book with those nice covers.

These are pretty cool, I really like the Moby Dick and Walden ones. The prices aren't insane either.

I'm with marxchivist on Moby Dick and Walden . . . these really hit the central flavor of both books. I liked The Road a lot too, for the same reason.

The Infinite Jest design is purely amazing -- actually approximates to scope of the work, as opposed to that Windows desktop-background version that has proliferated.

Heads will be microwaved.

Love it.

I believe the quote on the IJ cover is:

"I think of John N. R. Wayne, who would have won this year's WhataBurger, standing watch in a mask as Donald Gately and I dig up my father's head."

Wow, these are really cool! Thanks for sharing. I will be adding Society6 to my GoogleReader. :)

I'm getting about a .500 batting average here if these are meant to represent the work in question, and more like .750 if it's just "this is something kind of based on a book." Infinite Jest is perfection, Walden is great, Moby Dick and Slaughterhouse Five are okay but don't really add anything to the book experience for me, and that The Road thing is kind of shit, unless I'm missing something.

You're not missing anything. Nor is anyone who skipped the book. Ba-dum-pum!

The Infinite Jest poster gave me a serious case of the howling fantods.
