In this new series, Brazilian pop culture artist Butcher Billy reimagines some of the most iconic love songs as book covers.
“This series imagines an alternate universe in which some of the most hopeless, desperate and tragic heartbreak songs of the 70’s and 80’s were actually novels written by Stephen King. The concept is to look at the dark side of love through the lenses of pop culture, bringing twisted aspects of his classic stories to play with the original meanings of the songs – that can be completely subverted or strangely emphasized, while paying tribute to the vintage design of the original book covers.”

  1. I’ve often noticed how, taken literally, many “love song” lyrics sound like they’re written by stalkers or abusers… Very clever!
