Graphic designer Logan Walter
s' Wu-Note Project
is the latest, and possibly most-awesomest, cover-redesign project—in which graphic designers re-create movie, video game, record and book covers in the style of other music, records, movies and video game covers. Previously there have been Heath Killen
's modernist editions of famous records, Olly Moss
's Penguin Classics versions of video game covers, spacesick's "I Can Read Movies"
series and M.S. Corley
's redesigns of various fantasy novel covers.
Walter has created alternate covers for 18 Wu-Tang and Wu members' albums in the style of Blue Note Records record covers, and the results are pretty wonderfully contradictory, weird mashups of an easy listening aesthetic with gangsta rap photos and text. The best one is after the jump.
