There are a surprising number of popular public domain books/stories which have never been illustrated, and there’s really nothing stopping anyone. This Kickstarter is great with the fine bindings, but using a PoD service you can put out your own illustrated edition for almost nothing. I’m surprised that more art students, aspiring illustrators and hobbyists haven’t used this as a way to showcase their work.

Bill Sienkiewicz is the man. I saw him on comic con last year and I got a few autographs, but not a sketch. Now that I know what he charges though, if he comes back I will have to make it happen. AND get the rest of my Shadow books signed. And the prints I picked up since then.
