The Record Books of Christophe Gowans

I’m a sucker for media mash-ups, particularly when the medium is no longer the message (I sense that somewhere Woody Allen has Marshall McLuhan waiting in the wings to school me). Such is the case with a series by designer Christophe Gowans who’s collection of mock book covers inspired by hit albums handily redefines what “audiobook” might mean. I, for one, would love to “read” The Beatles’ Abbey Road, particularly the chapter entitled “She Came In Through the Bathroom Window,” which could probably stand as its own novella.

By Daedalus Howell

I explore the creative life as a storyteller, artist, and entrepreneur. I’m the writer-director of Pill Head and the forthcoming feature film Wolf Story. I’m also the author, most recently, of the novel Quantum Deadline, and am active in media (Bohemian, Pacific Sun). Learn how I went from small-town newspaperman to a feature film director here.
