Real Covers For Fake Books
Ever watched a movie and wished you had the book the characters were talking about? UK designer Daniel Gray has, and he decided to do something about it.
He started by creating his own fictional imprint, Vulture Books, with a logo that puts a slightly macabre twist on the iconic Penguin logo, then began designing covers for nonfiction books mentioned in films. Gray's blog describes the Vulture Books as: "classic non-fiction texts illuminating the darker corners of human thinking, published as paperbacks for the first time. Ideal for sharing, pocketing and inducing metaphysical despair."
The resulting art has a cool vintage aesthetic. Now if only someone would write the texts to go with them.
