Simon James of Standard Designs of London had a thought: what if today’s greatest musicians had become writers of literature instead? And what if their albums had actually been books?
His Etsy project re-imagines what this might have looked like sitting on a shelf.
Clever, no? He’s also repurposed albums from Springsteen, Lou Reed, the Velvet Underground, The Smiths, Joy Division, The Stone Roses, Pink Floyd and many more. You can see these prints at Standard Designs.
