Daniel Gray, Designer, Creates Fake Book Covers In Movies (PHOTOS)

Posted: Updated:

Daniel Gray, a UK-based graphic designer, was watching a movie when a thought occurred to him.

"'What if that book they mentioned was an actual paperback I could sling onto my shelves?'", he later reported on his blog, "and it spun out of control from there."

He's not the only one to have thought this - Flavorpill just last week ran an excellent slideshow of "Fake Books in Movies We Wish We Could Read" - but Gray's solution, which he called "Vulture Books", is by far the most aesthetically pleasing collection we've seen. Somebody hire him to make real books now, please.

See the slideshow below for the Vulture Books logo and the first selection in his series. As the designer himself states,
"full geek points if can identify the origins of each book" - for everyone else, the answers are written on the side of the slideshow.
