London artist Simon James takes studio albums by bands he admires and represents them as vintage books (bands I admire as well, hence me blogging about this). So far, he has done albums by The Smiths, Joy Division, New Order, and The Cure. And Kraftwerk.
And now he’s done 8 Radiohead albums: The Bends, OK Computer, Kid A, Amnesiac, Pablo Honey, Hail to the Thief, In Rainbows, and King of Limbs, with each track on each album its own volume, which the viewer sees as book-spines.
It is such a simple idea, excellently executed.
You can find them for sale on Etsy (you may also like to visit his Standard Designs page on Facebook): click on the links provided (links underlined). Individual prints can be purchased for £12.50 (British Sterling) / $19.38 (U.S. Dollars); and he has a special offer of £75 (about $100) for all eight prints, which is a pretty good deal.
Disclaimer: I have no commercial interest in selling these items, or promoting them—no interest or investment of any description whatever (commercial or otherwise)—and I do not know Simon James, nor do I know anyone connected to him. I simply like these prints (and the concept) and, sometime soon, I aim to treat myself to one or two of them at least, if not the full Radiohead set. Maybe for my birthday—I’ve a big one coming up.
