I Can Read Movies

In looking through some of the links on the previous post, I came across these pho-book covers as well. This time the thesis is: what if book covers needed to be designed for classic films? This time, spacesick has taken on the job and what a job he's done! In addition to the awesome graphic design, he's done some great work making these books look worn and well-loved. Head over to spacesick's blog and take a look at the goods. Which one's your favorite?

I Can Read Video Games

What if famous video games had their boxes redone in the style of a Penguin Classics paperback? The idea for the gallery on Kotaku came about from an absolutely brilliant graphic designer's personal project. Olly Moss rocks. After you take a look at what he's inspired by clicking the link to the gallery above, take a gander at his Flickr stream.

Oh yeah. And if you're currently living in a college dorm, you may want to print yourself out a set of these to keep your roommate(s) at bay. Olly is awesome. Just awesome.
