You’ve got to admit that Stephen King’s book covers are extraordinarily creepy. Some of the more disturbing covers include “Carrie”, “It”, “Pet Sematary” and “The Shining”. But what if famous love songs were reimagined as Stephen King book covers? Butcher Billy, a Brazilian illustrator, decided to do just that. Among the titles he created include “Every Breath You Take” (The Police), “Man Eater” (Hall & Oates), “I Will Survive” (Gloria Gaynor) and “Hello” (by Lionel Richie).
“This series imagines an alternate universe where some of the most desperate and tragic romantic songs in the ’70s and’ 80s are actually books written by Stephen King,” wrote Butcher on his Behance page. “The concept is to look at the dark side of love by the vision of pop culture, bringing aspects of its classic stories to play the true meaning of the songs – this can be completely subverted or stressed strangeness, while paying tribute to the vintage design of the original covers.”
