Schooled In Style

PhotobucketAs time continues to tick and tock away, it is better to make the most of your time, than to lament on what is already lost. That in itself is such a huge waste. But sometimes – okay no, a lot of times, something comes out and you wonder why it wasn’t around when you were younger.

You know – like our parents with computers? Our grandparents with cell phones? Our ancestors without tvs and cars? We’re a spoiled bunch, humanity. But we may only enjoy and bask in all its glory while we have it, no?

With that, I was pleasantly surprised about the Penguin Deluxe Edition prints of classic books such as The Scarlet Letter and Pride and Prejudice with the cover designs by famed fashion illustrator Ruben Toledo.

I’ve always been a fan of his illustrations (check the main image if you need a refresher) because he took it to a new level for me. There was no major concern for dimensions (the heads are almost always in Bratz dolls size), and the lines were more curvy and drape-y than strict illustration, but were also chock full of more artistic attitude than generic curves. Hopefully that makes sense on paper equally as much as it does in my head. 🙂
