The Smiths on the shelf April 2, 2013 – Tags: book design, Books and Art, Books and Music, The Smiths
It seems like the taking of one art form and reimagining and repackaging it as another is all the rage these days. Christoph Gowan is probably the best known artist in this genre for his ongoing series The Record Book.
Now thanks to Standard Designs in London I get to see how my favorite band looks in books.
They have transformed the four studio albums released by The Smiths into shelf candy.
and if you like some of the other influential bands of that time Standard Designs also serves up some Joy Division and New Order.
