Not Sure Which Classic Book to Illustrate?

September 16, 2015

Recovering the Classics has been around since 2013 but a lot has happened since then! We started with 50 titles and now have over 100 titles that you can submit a design for! As a part of our partnership with the New York Public Library, and the Digital Public Library of America we need help getting new covers for a lot of our newly added titles. Many of the titles below have no designs submitted yet so you could be the first!

So if you're considering submitting a new Recovering the Classics design, we suggest you take a look at this list and help spread the love to all these great books! Head over to the uploader when you're ready to submit your design, or to see more details in the creative brief.

We'd love to tell you about Annie Riker, an artist out of Asheville, North Carolina. She's a surface designer and illustrator who over the years has contributed her national park posters and sticker designs to CAN. This spring her Appalachian Trail design inspired two See America product launches, Merrell trail running shoes and Wyeth hats! Annie is a former Creative Director for the NPCA and we're so grateful that her national park expertise, love of nature, creative spirit and illustration skills landed her in our community where her work can do so much good. You can see Annie's designs online at CAN and be sure to check out her Merrell trail running shoes and Wyeth hat project, too, all helping support Earthjustice organization. We know you'll enjoy reading all about Annie!
