There are many reasons why a classic is dubbed a classic and one comes down to timelessness; this series of pop culture book covers shows just how timeless these titles really are. 'Through the Looking Glass' is accompanied by a shot of a woman taking a selfie, 'Much Ado About Nothing' is paired with a portrait of Kim Kardashian and 'To Kill a Mockingbird' is illustrated with a still from a Super Mario Bros. game.

Clever and comical, these pop culture book covers are part of the series titled 'Pop Goes the Penguin.' They were Julien Britnic, an artist based in Bucharest, Romania. Although extremely simple and modern, the overall design of the pop culture book covers are in line with the companies existing aesthetics. Britnic knows what he's doing.
