Obvious State Illustrated Classics is an evolving series of visually reimagined beloved works. The pocket-sized editions feature the selected works of celebrated authors such as T. S. Eliot, Edgar Allan Poe, Walt Whitman, Sara Teasdale, Henry David Thoreau, Robert Frost, Emily Dickinson, John Keats and Pablo Neruda. Each edition is illustrated by Obvious State Co-founder, Evan Robertson. The minimalist books are a great gift for current classics lovers and those who want a beautiful introduction to foundational, enduring works. 

In addition to the Illustrated Classics, we're adding a series of longer fictional works as part of our Blind Date series. 

All of our books are printed in California on FSC certified, sustainable paper made with 10% recycled content. We use soy and vegetable-based inks and uncoated paper for a beautiful, elegant finish.
