Grand Central Publishing Asked its Followers to Re-Imagine Books for Hipsters

New York-Based trade publishers 'Grand Central Publishing' issued a comical series of GIFs and illustrations that feature hipster book titles.

Trying to combine literature with hipster culture, the publishing firm took to Twitter to ask its followers to come up with hipster versions of pop culture books. Clearly, the company got an array of responses -- all of which are thoroughly entertaining and adhere to a tongue-in-cheek commentary.

Some of the re-appropiated books have titles like 'Horton Hears a Who... Before Anyone Else,' 'Of Mustaches & Men,' which is in place of John Steinback's iconic 'Of Mice & Men' novel, and 'Girl with the Sailor Jerry Tattoo,' to name a few.

While the fake book titles are amusing and comical, they truly shed light on society's growing subculture.
