Here Are Smiths Songs As Book Covers

Smiths fans are a notoriously literate bunch--you'd have to be to be able to parse Morrissey's penchant for dramatic, idiosyncratic lyrics. The titles alone are enough to paint a vivid picture, and now an artist has taken that idea and run with it.

Chris Thornley decided to turn classic Smiths lines like "Sheila, take a bow" and "will nature make a man of me yet?" (from "This Charming Man") into old-school Penguin-style book covers with their own literary genres. The results are pretty great--you could certainly see these lining dusty bookshelves in an old library-- and the stories told within are eminently timeless (and catchy!).

See them all here, or just curl up with your favorite song and daydream away. [AV Club]
