If They Were Books

game-book-covers3.jpg

Do you ever remember going to the school library, browsing through the various books available to see if anything looked interesting? Remember coming across some of the well-worn older ones in the fiction section that had ambiguous, monochromatic illustrations printed on the cover? Remember how they seemed a little cheap but at the same time carried a bit of an enticingly creepy ambiguity about the story within? UK artist AJ Hateley certainly does and has created several as a part of his/her (I'm really not sure of AJ's gender; the Tumblr blog is ambiguous) project on Tumblr called "Thirty Days of Video Games." The illustrations are fantastic and do a magnificent job of evoking that slightly eerie-yet-fascinating vibe that some old fiction paperbacks have and cover a wide swath of games, like Super Mario Land, Left 4 Dead, Fallout 3, and Shadow of the Colossus (which is my personal fave of the bunch so far). Head on over to the Tumblr blog and give the artwork a look-see, and you lucky UK residents can even buy prints starting at the low, low price of £1.50.

And I will express personal gratitude in some presently unspecified-yet-enthusiastic and moderately publicly inappropriate way to the person who makes Majora Quest Series: A Link Adventure Novel a real thing.
