Entertainment Weekly revealed the covers to a fun project from Guillermo del Toro I was unaware of (he’s got about a thousand going at once so this doesn’t surprise me). As we all know very well, del Toro is a huge horror fan so he teamed up with Penguin Classics to produce a set of his favorite horror stories! EW says the covers are all designed and illustrated by Penguin Art Director Paul Buckley and del Toro will be writing introductions for each. The titles should be available starting later this month.
