Holy cow those are some wine labels:

They’re by Tomer Hanuka for the wine makers Some Young Punks. That’s Tomer Hanuka who you may know as being no slob with a book cover:

This is all great stuff, and I want to see more of this. Publishers, get on it. From Penguin, two posters of the fantastic covers for the new set of Penguin Deluxe Classics:

Then the very delightful design blog Kitsune Noir has begun the Kitsune Noir Poster Club by asking five artists to produce a poster based on a book they love. The results of which include another take on Moby Dick:

But I think my two favourites are these, coming from opposite ends of the austerity scale:

Infinite Jest poster by Cody Hoyt for Kitsune Noir

Poster inspired by David Foster Wallace’s Infinte Jest, by Cody Hoyt

Walden poster by Jez Burrows for Kitsune Noir

Poster inspired by Henry David Thoreau’s Walden, by Jez Burrows

The other two titles are Kurt Vonnegut’s Slaughterhouse-Five and Cormac McCarthy’s The Road.

And then there’s Penguin designer and, more importantly, ≥ regular Stefanie Posavec, who has a print at 20x200. It’s based on Walter Benjamin’s ‘The Work of Art in the Age of Mechanical Reproduction’, and uses the same technique to visualize the text as she’s used before for On the Road.
