Here Are 40 Covers For Classic Books (IF They Were Honest)

Cracked pays people to make smart memes. Visit the Photoplasty and Pictofacts Workshop to get in on it.

There's a well-known rule about not judging books by their covers, but that's nuts. The entire point of a book cover is to show you what's inside. The fact that the book covers don't actually prepare a person for what's inside doesn't mean we should stop using them as a source of information. It just means the cover designers should be doing a better job.

We asked our readers to remedy that problem, and paid cash to our favorite.
