DailyLit was making plans to put out new electronic editions of several public domain works of literature. But Jennifer 8. Lee, co-founder of DailyLit's parent company, Plympton, wanted these e-books to stand out from other versions of the same titles--and, she explained, "I didn't want to use auto-generated covers." So she got in touch with the Creative Action Network, and together they worked out the concept behind Recovering the Classics. Artists and designers can submit their covers for any of the 50 books in the initial roster, from Don Quixote to Ulysses; if a reader purchases an e-book or print-on-demand trade paperback featuring their cover, the illustrator gets 40% of the revenue from the sale.
