Artist Timothy Andersen has made several book covers of Sci-Fi classic movies as if they were the sort of pulp lovelies you’d find on the bottom rack of the second hand bookstore. First we have The Matrix, which I like better than the entire series.
Then Alien, which I think Ridley Scott would dislike because it takes a high-concept movie and reduces it to a silly monster novel. Which is sort of what Alien is if you think of it. Not that there’s anything wrong with that at all.
Lastly: Blade Runner! A noir novel done up like a Mickey Spillane or Chandler novel. I love how the people on the novel are Sean Young and Harrison Ford done as vivid pulp characters. I love the insignia and the pricing, as well as the tattered quality, as if all these books have been living under a lonely man’s bed.
