some retro-cool artsy links

Do you guys remember how old paperback covers used to look like? All monochromatic and dramatic, with more emphasis on tone than anything else. I sort of miss those. Anyway, I have two links for you to check out, in which the fine denizens of internet-land pay homage to the classic, classy book cover.

Spacesick is an artist/art fan who made these book covers based on classic and not-so-classic movies. I really dig this Indiana Jones cover. My brother used the Shaun of the Dead cover as his wallpaper.

Never one to disappoint, Something Awful's Photoshop Phriday had its forum goons come up with some really, really amazing game covers. This No One Lives Forever cover really brings back memories of a pretty fun FPS, back in the day. Be sure to check out the ones for Halo and Half-Life 2, they are awesome.
