Recovering the Classics

Call of the Wild by Michael van Kekem


Artist Statement

"My version of the cover for Jack London's Call of the Wild was meant to be a basic feel of cold, mountains, and screams or howls if you will. Typography and a basic look sometimes say more than images." - Michael van Kekem

Michael van Kekem is an illustrative designer and printmaker based in the Netherlands. Also works in a collective: Studio M. Creates editorial illustraties, prints, books/zines, posters, typography, identities and products.

About our Prints

Each poster is hand-printed and handled, to make sure that only the highest quality is offered and sent out. The matte paper and high quality of inks make for a vibrant image which looks great both framed, and au-naturel. Printed in Los Angeles, CA, on Epson Enhanced Matte Paper, heavyweight stock, high color gamut, using Epson UltraChrome HDR ink-jet technology. Framed posters offer the same, museum-quality printed poster, but wrapped in a protective black frame. The frame is lightweight and includes a shatter-resistant acrylite front protector, so it won't break in the mail. International orders may be subject to customs duties & taxes.


Recovering the Classics is a collection of new covers for 100 of the greatest works of fiction in the public domain. Together we can help to keep these classics fresh, modern, and accessible to new generations of readers. As part of an initiative announced by the White House, we are partnering with the New York Public Library and the Digital Public Library of America to bring these amazing covers to libraries and schools nationwide.
