The Smiths Song Lyrics as Classic Penguin Paperback Book Covers

The Smiths - Penguin book covers by Chris Thornley

If only Morrissey would take to writing books.

Manchester, UK artist Chris Thornley (aka “Raid71“) has created a series of book covers that each use song lyrics from the 80s alternative rock band The Smiths and resemble the classic look and style of retro Penguin paperback books. Select poster prints of the book cover designs are available to purchase from the Hunting Bears online store.
