matt stevens recreates book covers designs inspired by blockbuster movies

books or their movie adaptations. which one is better? really.

that’s a question that haunts every cinephile and bibliophile. and there doesn’t seem to be an end to this debate any time soon. maybe it doesn’t even need a debate. what if we all just agreed that sometimes the book is better and sometimes a movie just brings scenes to life in a way that a book could never do.

but what do you do when you love both of them equally? and you just happen to be one gifted designer.

that’s what matt stevens is.

in his series titled, ‘good movies as old books’, this charlotte based designer and illustrator picked a few of his favourite movies and imagined them as vintage book covers. yeah. he just turned the concept over on its head.

and we love them.

here are a few of the designs that caught our eye. you can buy individual prints of the designs on his online store or just buy his self-published book that has all 100 of the designs in it.

you can also follow his work on his website or on his instagram and twitter handles.
