Okay, I've officially discovered my first favorite piece of geeked-out awesomeness of 2009, and it comes in the form of these excellent 1960s-inspired paperback book covers of novelized movie adaptations. Artist Mitch Ansara created these illustrations as part of his own Make Something Cool Every Dayproject, and all of them come from his (fictional) I Can Read Movies series. What we have are paperback book covers for films like Back to the Future, Mean Girls, Ghostbusters, Shaun of the Dead and Caddyshack, among others. My personal favorite (as seen in the gallery below) is the freaky Japanese paperback cover he created for Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. Check out some of our favorites down below, then head on over to this page and click on the paperback cover to read more about how Mitch went about creating it. Nice work, sir.
