Stephen King is the master of horror.
Now that may not be clear from all the sh*tty adaptations that his books have gotten, but trust me, his original works are something else all together. So you might be aware that a good horror book requires a good book cover.
While I know that we shouldn’t judge a book by it’s cover, but who doesn’t do that? And the following books would be amazing to read judging by the covers and if they were real books. The person who changed the famous songs into creepy book covers is Brazilian graphic designer and illustrator Butcher Billy which is quite an appropriate name.
The concept is to look at the dark side of love by the vision of pop culture, bringing aspects of its classic stories to play the true meaning of the songs – this can be completely subverted or stressed strangeness, while paying tribute to the vintage design of the original covers.
