Classic Books Illustrated with a Minimalist Twist

After enchanting us last year with his minimalist designs inspired by children’s stories, artist Christian Jackson is back with a new series of illustrations based on literary classics. His images incorporate iconic symbols from beloved books, from Piggy’s broken glasses in Lord of the Flies to the mysterious green light in The Great Gatsby.

Jackson’s designs are 100% digital, created using Illustrator and then “textured and lit” in Photoshop. We included our favorite illustrations in the gallery above, and you can view more of his gorgeous art on his website.
