Smiths Lyrics as Penguin Classic Book Covers

If you’re anything like us, you’ve spent many an afternoon kicked back on your bed, listening to the plaintive tones of The Smiths and reading a tattered Penguin Classic, nodding fiercely at the injustice of the world. Even if not, we think you’ll probably be able to appreciate these excellent imagined book covers by Raid 71, aka Chris Thornley, which we spotted over at Creative Bloq. Thornley cherry-picks lyrics and turns them into book titles, dressing them up in that classic 60s Penguin iconography we all know so well. Click through to take a gander, and if you love them as much as we do, you can head on over to Hunting Bears to pick up a few of the illustrations in poster form. You know, to hang above your bed as you keep on reading the classics and listening to sad sack ’80s pop.
