Brazilian graphic designer and illustrator Butcher Billy got the idea of turning famous love hits into book covers of horror master Stephen King. Joy Division's "Love Will Tear Us Apart," The Smiths, "Head Over Heels" by Tears For Fears and many others were portrayed in a very unusual way.

"This series imagines an alternate universe where some of the most desperate and tragic romantic songs in the '70s and' 80s are actually books written by Stephen King. The concept is to look at the dark side of love by the vision of pop culture, bringing aspects of its classic stories to play the true meaning of the songs - this can be completely subverted or stressed strangeness, while paying tribute to the vintage design of the original covers," Butcher writes on his Behance.

wow ... mind blown ... it never occurred to me that Pink Floyd sang love songs! Now I'll have to listen to all their old records with a new understanding of what they were singing about (Comfortably Numb, Brain Damage, Run Like Hell ... it's all becoming clear now)
