This week’s Bookseller magazine has just arrived and there is a gem in Bent’s Notes on the back page. Graphic designer Christophe Gowans has re-made rock and pop albums as if they were classic book jackets.
My favourites are:-
Patti Smith’s ‘Horses’ as a DK Eyewitness Guide to Horses
Level 42’s ‘World Machine’ as Catch-22
Adam and the Ants’ ‘Kings of the Wild Frontier’ as a Wild West book for children
‘What’s the Story Morning Glory’ by Oasis as a religious pamphlet
Check out Christophe’s blog.
