I’d like to you to meet Simon James, a London-based artist and the proprietor of Standard Designs, an Etsy shop all of you are about to get lost in. I’m sorry, I’m not sorry.
James creates work that “reflects [his] love of literature, music, art, design and the occasional awful pun,” and I seriously can’t get over how great it all is. Especially his series that explores band albums as classic paperback books.
Check out some of his coolest pieces below, and be sure to follow him on Facebook, Twitter, and Tumblr. He does some really cool stuff, and I can’t wait to hang one of these Radiohead prints up in my apartment.
Joy Division’s Closer
Radiohead’s Hail to the Thief
Radiohead’s OK Computer
The Cure’s Head on the Door
The Smiths’ Self Titled
