Poster series: What if albums were actually Penguin books?

As an artist, I live in the realm of ‘what-if’ and ‘turn x into y’. In my most recent series of prints, I’ve switched some of my favourite bands from musicians to writers: what if the songs they’d written had come out as books instead of music?

So with groups like Radiohead, Kraftwerk, The Smiths and others, I’ve taken their albums and created mini-libraries, with each track becoming its own book, all modelled on those exquisite Penguin & Pelican paperbacks from the 1950s-1970s.
