Faber Modern Classics is set to launch its new Modern Classics range. They’ll favor photographic images over illustrations and a line from each text on the covers.

From the Creative Review article:

Hannah Griffiths, Faber’s associate fiction publisher, who led the development of the series, says that the criteria for inclusion was that the titles were originally published by Faber, and at least twenty-five years old. “This was to give us a real sense that these are books that can justify the term ‘modern classic’,” she adds.




I’d buy the books just for the covers…been known to do that…

The launch list of covers is at Faber Modern Classics
