    8 Classic Writers Reimagined As Punk Rockers

    Quoth the raven, "OI OI OI!"

    In celebration of California Bookstore Day (the self-described "'Record Store Day' for book nerds") artist Wendy MacNaughton teamed up with Chronicle Books to create the Punk Rock Writers Journal. The book is only available for purchase this Saturday, May 3, at bookstores participating in CBD. Given that we don't all live in the Golden State, MacNaughton was kind enough to share some images with us here.

    Punk Rock Agatha Christie

    Punk Rock Langston Hughes

    Punk Rock Gertrude Stein

    Punk Rock Mark Twain

    Punk Rock Emily Dickinson

    Punk Rock Zora Neale Hurston

    Punk Rock Franz Kafka

    Punk Rock Oscar Wilde

    If you live in California, definitely don't miss California Bookstore Day!
