Treasure Island is a tale of pirates and buried gold, and Stevenson was said to have start writing it when he was 30 years old.

And while the Google logo today celebrates Stevenson’s 160th birthday, each letter from the word Google represents the important characters and items from the novel, Treasure Island.

As seen in the screenshot of Google‘s homepage below, the first letter ‘G’ is now being shown as the pirate’s cape, the letter ‘E’ is an opened treasure box, while the other letters are very easy to identify.
