70s & 80s Rock Albums Imagined as Vintage Book Sets

Classic albums as books by Standard Designs

Closer by Joy Division (1980)

London designer Standard Designs has converted a number of rock albums from the 70s and 80s into imaginary sets of vintage books for his ingenious music-themed print series. Each song in an album is represented by a book, and the books are arranged in track order. The prints are available for purchase.
