in rainbooks

Simon James, an artist living and working in London, has a penchant for taking albums and envisioning them as vintage Penguin & Pelican-style books. So far, he has covered The SmithsJoy DivisionNew OrderThe Cure and Kraftwerk. And now comes his favorite band, Radiohead. Here, he takes Pablo Honey, The Bends, OK Computer, Kid A, Amnesiac, Hail to the Thief, In Rainbows and The King of Limbs and then turns each track, on each album, into its own novel. You can find the images on Etsy. Just follow the links above. Individual prints can also be purchased for $19.38.
