People Bored At Home Are Recreating Classic Book Covers

It seems that this current pandemic is starting all kinds of interesting challenges. First, it was the musuem challenge then the pillow challenge and now it looks like the #BookCoverChallenge is taking over Twitter.

The premise is quite simple; recreate a book cover using your own resources found around your home and post it for everyone to see. Let's go!

1. 'Jaws'

I gotta admit, I'm more familiar with the movie than the actual book, but this cover art is as eerie as they come. And the recreation of it is not only spot on but super funny, too. Ha, ha!

9. 'Hamlet'

It doesn't get any more classic than Shakespeare's Hamlet. Am I right? This modern take on it that makes fun of the toilet paper craze is so fitting for this day and age. This is absolutely spot on.
