Roseanne Serra/Ruben Toledo: Couture Classics

Roseanne Serra commissioned illustrator Ruben Toledo to create these unexpected fashiony takes on well-known classics. All are Penguin Classic Deluxe editions in paperback with French flaps, and there are nice special effects to enhance the cool illustrations - like a red foil thread that runs through the large A of Scarlet Letter.

this in my opinion works for a very particular audience. Not sure that fans of classic literature would find this amusing. But I like it!

I like the first two a lot--but the Scarlet Letter one just doesn't work for me. I think it's the modern garb.

I think these are fantastic! She did such a great job.
