Poster: Track listing as books

Post by jarkko » Mon Nov 18, 2013 9:23 am

Leonard Cohen is of course a published novelist, but what if he'd chosen to create the songs on his 1975 'Best Of/Greatest Hits' album as books instead of songs? Well, here's how the Cohen library might have shaped up.

Each book in this print corresponds to a track on the album, arranged in the order they appear on the original vinyl release. They're all based on those wonderful classic Penguin and Pelican paperback book designs.

The books, in track order, are: Suzanne, Sisters of Mercy, So Long Marianne, Bird on the Wire, Lady Midnight, The Partisan, Hey That's No Way to Say Goodbye, Famous Blue Raincoat, Last Year's Man, Chelsea Hotel #2, Who By Fire, and Take This Longing.

Size: 16.5 x 11.5 inches, 42 x 29.7 cm

I hope you and your readers will enjoy it. Thanks very much for your time.

Best wishes
