Clever: Penguin book covers mixed with pop culture images

Pop Goes the Penguin - Metamorphosis

Pop Goes the Penguin

Pop Goes the Penguin is a new, and extremely exciting Tumblr blog, set up by Julien Britnic, a Bucharest-based designer and poet.

Julien has come up with an idea to give new meaning to classic Penguin book covers. She is mixing design elements of the iconic book series with images specific to times we live in.

For instance, On the Road by Jack Kerouac comes with a picture of Google Street View car. Metamorphosis? Franz Kafka would get curious to see the Spider-Man.

So far, 13 covers were release on Pop Goes the Penguin tumblog. All clever and hilarious. We are waiting for more!
