Silly Spins On Modern Classics

Picture of Paula Koller-Alonso
Updated: 17 March 2016
We all know the literature classics of the last centuries: Oliver Twist, Romeo and Juliet, The Lord of the Rings, and many more. However, all of these works were set in a fictional world, without the most important revolutionary platform of the last decade: social media. FlipSnack has decided to investigate this dilemma, and created a visual paradigm in which the story-line of these classics is updated to the modern world of technology. The illustrations are a collaboration between designers Jazmin Batisti and Matt Lindley. In honour of World Book Day, find out how Willy Wonka, Frodo and Aslan the Lion would have lived in the 21st century…
