Your Favorite Album As a Book

What if your favorite album was actually adapted from a book?

That is basically the premise for Christophe Gowans’s series of book covers where he reimagines popular records like Aracde Fire’s The Suburbs, Blood On The Tracks by Bob Dylan, and the Chili Peppers’ Blood, Sugar, Sex, Magik as well worn books.

Below are a few of my favorites, but be sure to head over to his flickr to see the rest.

I love how he imagines Purple Rain as a science fiction novel from the 80s and while I haven’t been the biggest fan of The Killers album, I love how he used the lyrics from Mr. Brightside as a great tagline for a murder mystery.

His collection has also been published as a set titled The Record Books: Volume 1, which you can find here.
