50 Watts Polish Book Cover Contest

50 Watts just held a book cover contest in which participants were challenged to design the “Polish edition” of their favorite book. Directly above is the winning book cover designed by Ben Jones.

I like this contest idea for many reasons, but mostly because everyone got to choose their own book. You can tell that participants have chosen books that mean something to them, books that they know. The resulting entries are energetic and exciting. I highly recommend taking a look at the rest of the book covers (winners posted here; all entries posted on flickr here) Major props to 50 Watts and to everyone who submitted!
