Artist Imagines Romantic Songs As Creepy Book Covers By Stephen King
Since tomorrow is Valentine’s Day, perhaps you’ll be making a romantic playlist. But take a closer listen to classic love songs, and many hide a sinister theme.
Artist Butcher Billy felt many were right at home as Stephen King titles, and designed the covers to match.
“This series imagines an alternate universe where some of the most desperate and tragic romantic songs in the ’70s and’ 80s are actually books written by Stephen King. 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,” Butcher explains.
