M.S. Corley redesigned the covers for Philip Pullman’s His Dark Materials trilogy (still haven’t read the third one yet, how’d that happen?) to resemble Penguin Classic covers.
You’ll have to head over to his site to see his sublime work on the other two. I hadn’t realized that the first book was called The Northern Lights in England and not The Golden Compass. I guess the Golden Compass is more in line with the other two books, but I rather like The Northern Lights as a title.
More exciting though, is that he is working on covers for The Chronicles of Narnia with this very style.
I love the retro-ness of it. It’s like stumbling onto something amazing up in grandma’s attack.
