Minimalist book cover art brings a new spark to these book classicsS

Even if you're tired of the "minimalist art" fad, these book covers are worth celebrating. For one thing, writer and graphic designer Nicolas Beaujouan has picked many of the greatest classics of science fiction and fantasy to illustrate anew. For another, there are some very clever choices here.

Beaujouan chose 23 classic books for his "Ultimate Geek Selection," which is sadly pretty heavily weighted towards male authors. But the results are still really eye-catching, and like the best minimalist art, these attempts to boil a complex story down to a single image might make you rethink the works they're illustrating. Check out some of our favorites below, and more at the links. [Geek-Art via The Mary Sue]
