These avant garde book covers are by Chicago-based artist, Richard Tuttle. The artist has created a unique book cover that complements and capture the essence of the classical literature in this series. From Edgar Allen Poe, to George Orwell to George Bernard Shaw, this luxury collection covers the finest in classical and contemporary modern literature.
The one of a kind ornamental books are incredibly all first editions, making them highly collectible. The artist, who can also add writer, graphic designer, carpenter and bookbinder to his list of talents, had to say of his work: "I make literary artifacts. They are designed to pull books down off the shelf and display them in the salon, gallery or home as if they were works of art, which, of course, they are."
