Time for another round of Fake Book Titles that I’ve done, compiled from twitter! You can see compilation 1, compilation 2, compilation 3 and compilation 4 at the links. It’s been a while since I compiled these, so there’s a lot to catch up on…
Endless Quest books are an endless source of entertainment.
Another fake title that I wish was no longer understandable.
Lots of vintage books look a lot creepier these days than they were intended.
Jokes about clueless teenagers never get old.
This one is one of my favorites of all time.
I saw this cover, and considering H.P. Lovecraft was a big ol’ racist, I knew immediately what I needed to do.
Vintage romance novel covers are always pretty good for these.
To further prove my observation:
I had this cover sitting around forever and was just deciding on the perfect title.
Soooo many vintage covers can be interpreted as mansplaining.
Another topical one. I enjoy getting the fonts to match the originals as much as possible.
Perspectives on a lot of these old covers were not great.
This next one is one I’m especially proud of.
Sometimes I may go too far.
Three Investigators books are also very good fodder.
This next one is basically a callback to a much earlier fake book title.
This is another book cover that I had floating around forever before I figured out the perfect title.
Another reliable source of covers: Blade novels!
I hate this guy so much I ended up doing two of his awful book:
This is another one that took me forever to do… but this time because it took me a long time to find a font I liked.
Admit it: the helmet is strikingly similar.
Okay I’m not proud.
Did I mention that old craft books often look incredibly creepy?
Whew! That was a lot! Okay, I’m all caught up, until the next Extravaganza!
