For his Record Books project, Christophe Gowans has taken the titles of more than 100 well-known record albums and recast them as imaginary books, with made-up jacket copy and covers he designs. Here's how he transformed Prince's Purple Rain: “When a form of acid rain appears to stunt the growth of every living thing, man’s existence is on a knife edge. Pygmies realise that the peach is unaffected, and found a new society, with the peach stone as its currency.... It just screams late-60s/early 70s sci-fi—big, thick, stupid paperbacks.”
Bob Dylan, The Beatles, and The Rolling Stones.
