Atlantic Crime Classics

Are we tired of classics repackaged in carefully defined series by designers with clear thematic vision? No not quite yet. This new line of “Crime Classics” from Atlantic Books looks as if it was designed in anticipation of the retro book-cover remix fad that’s all the craze with the hep cats.

These books — mixed in with some other seasonal selections from Atlantic — can be found here. Rob of The Fiction Desk also has some comments on the “curation” of these books. (btw, anyone know which designer is responsible for these?)

    Walzo is the designer of the series and he has asked various designers/illustrators to do the cover images.
