Kaluga based artist Alex Frey published a series of illustrations portraying Russian classical authors dressed in modern fashion clothing brands. His work was timed with the year of literature in Russia.

According to Frey, the main idea of his project is promotion of Russian literature among the modern society. “I want to promote interest in reading among the young generation, to show that the classic literature is a must-read and still can relate to the modern Russian society.”
