It's pretty hard in this era of smartphones, social media and constant information overload to get someone interested in a few literary classics; that's where these awesome pulp covers come into play.

The 'Pulp! The Classics' initiative gives classic literary works like The Great Gatsby, Robinson Crusoe, and Pride and Prejudice an adrenaline shot in the arm. The pulp covers are designed to look like the pulp fiction (not the Tarantino movie) serials of the earlier half of the 20th century that featured excess and violent content typically printed on rough unfinished paper. Despite reinventing the pulp covers for modern times, the text inside remains entirely untouched and unabridged, ensuring that readers experience these stories as they were originally intended by their original authors.

Pulp! The Classics will be releasing these classic novel with their unique pulp covers throughout 2013. Stats for Pulp Fiction Literature Makeovers Trending: Older & Warm
