If you’ve ever wondered what your favorite albums would look like if given a visual form, Christophe Gowans' art will surely satisfy this curiosity.

Christophe Gowans has taken popular album titles and reinterpreted them as book covers. The resulting pieces either reflect the album's title through art or add an ironic graphic twist that’s the complete opposite of the band's personality. The Pixies' Surfer Rosa, for example, has become a friendly children’s book, while Prince’s Purple Rain has turned into a sci-fi story.

Fans of music will love Gowans’ humorous, quirky interpretations of popular albums. It’s an extremely well-executed concept that’s a must-see. I wonder how NWA’s Straight Outta Compton might have been depicted.
