That Cover Is Naked

What will you do ? You can draw, paint, scribble or scratch to make your mark on it. Frame it, read it, give it as a gift or hide it away on a shelf at your library.

Few months back, I came across some peculiar books published by Penguin on the shelves at Commercial Press in The Cathay.  The covers of these books were blank, just white, not even a title. Only upon closer inspection then I realized that they did it on purpose.

Penguin wants the readers to design and make the covers. I bought The Picture of Dorian Gray and The Great Gatsby, thinking that I might want to give it a try, but eventually gave up due to busy schedules (an excuse, may be). The contest is over, but do go here to view the inspirational creations.
