The Smiths and Joy Division Albums As Shelves of Books

There are certain songwriters whose work has a decidedly literary bent, so much so that you could totally imagine their songs being turned into prose — or, maybe, their entire albums into books. Such is the idea behind these prints from UK design studio Standard Designs, which reimagine classic albums by The Smiths, Joy Division, and New Order as shelves of books. They’re pretty great, honestly, and they’re for sale — if you fancy investing, the prints are available via this Etsy shop.
