Classic Roald Dahl book covers redesigned

August 7, 2014, Article by Tom in Books

The new cover for Roald Dahl’s Charlie and the Chocolate Factory – unveiled yesterday by Penguin Books UK – is causing quite a stir on Twitter. A lot of people seem to hate it, but we love it.

Yes, it’s a bit weird, but that’s the whole point; it’s bold, edgy and totally unexpected. We take our hats off to the design team at Penguin Modern Classics.

And in homage to the slightly unnerving look on Veruca Salt’s plasticy face, we decided to help the Penguin design team out and create the next set of classic Roald Dahl book covers for them. You can have these on us guys:
