After a bit of a hiatus, #bookswithalettermissing started trending again on Twitter. Here, book lovers celebrated their favorite literary works by remixing/erasing part of the title and following the hashtags’ self-explanatory instructions: get rid of just one letter. Before long Twitter was awash with ‘new’ books to be enjoyed all ever again: The Da Vinci Cod and Jurassic Ark, were notable examples.[see_also]
Adding to the entertainment was RedPanDarth (@darth), a Twitter user whose Photoshopping skills quickly transformed the real-life book covers into their new renditions, sans-letter. Here we bring you a selection of the photoshopped covers Darth quickly popped up, and which gained such a quick following that people were sending him requests to fulfill. Check out more remixes as they come in on Twitter.
