I Can Read Movies


Product tie-ins today feel so forced and flaccid. These faux-book covers remind me of the thrill of previous decades, and of being 13 – when turning a movie into a book, a backpack, and a breakfast cereal didn’t seem crass, it just seemed a blast.


These are three of a twenty-five part series by retro-minded graphic designer Spacesick.


His blog promises a second series shortly. I’m hoping The Goonies, Space Camp, or The Allnighter (starring doe-eyed darling Susanna Hoffs) might make the next round.
