Recovering the Classics Art Project

The San Francisco Main Library had an exhibit on display called "Recovering the Classics". It is a new crowdsourcing project at the Creative Action Network, a global community of artists and designers that participate and often provide their artistry to crowdsourced campaigns around causes. While the campaign is targeted at illustrators, typographers and artists, anyone is invited to contribute. There is a list of 100 books  that you can submit artwork for. This project, part of an initiative by the White House, hopes to bring these covers to schools and libraries across the country. Your artwork could be featured on covers and eBooks if selected. The ones on display were created by people:

It was a cool display and here is the info on how you can submit your work at and see the list of 100 books at:
