Artist Creates Extremely Short Versions Of Famous Books For Lazy People
This artist creates extremely short versions of famous books for lazy people and the world simply can’t get enough of them. Why even bother reading the whole thing when you can get the pure essence and focus on the core of the book within a few seconds time?
Seriously? Who in their right mind would ever want to read the ‘full version’ of a book ever again? Who would… Wait! Stop! No, I can’t continue like this any longer, because I imagine that some people would misinterpret the satire.
However, brilliant illustrator John Atkinson, the man behind this awesome series of illustrations, has decided to go to Amazon and share his ‘book of books’ with all those lazy people out there who want to at least have some idea about some of the books they overheard their friends talking about.
