We are back to flogging the already flogged... but just to be sure, we wanted to reiterate that this ongoing booklist from Yann Martel continues to inspire.

It happened to bring us to the Penguin paperback versions of some classix with formerly hip illustrators doing the covers... and the Chris Ware cover of Candide is in fact pretty clever and appealing. Perhaps the other RAW-cum-Penguin covers conceal worthy contents too. I know these translators provide text (inside the nifty covers) that are worth (re-)investing in.

Just sayin'.

Very nice! Life Magazine asked comic artists in 1947 to draw with their eyes closed, and most of the results look like Gary Panter comix. Excellent!

Thanks to boingboing for drawing this to our attentions.
