Rock Paper Books launched in 2014 with the mission to print classic books in a modern style. The independent publisher currently offers 24 titles with cover art by Mike Mahle, from J.M. Barrie’s Peter Pan to Sun Tzu’s The Art of War.
Yesterday, Rock Paper Books unveiled a Kickstarter campaign for their new Shakespeare Collection featuring cover art by Robert Ball.* The campaign met it’s goal of $3,500 during the first day, ensuring that William Shakespeare’s play Hamlet will go to print next year. For each additional $3,500 pledged, an additional Shakespearean play will be printed. With rewards including trade paperbacks, ebooks and art prints, this is definitely a Kickstarter worth supporting.

*You might recognize Ball as the illustrator of the Beautiful Death series, which commemorates every death on HBO’s Game of Thrones with a gorgeous print.
