It’s been a while since I compiled my fake book title posts from Twitter, so it’s time to do so again! You can see compilation 1, compilation 2, compilation 3, compilation 4 and compilation 5 at the links.
For those who don’t recall, this is a weird little activity I got into with my Twitter pal @bhaal_spawn a few years ago, and we just keep going! We find odd vintage book covers and give them humorous alternate titles, or at least try to. So let’s go…
This next one became one of my all-time favorites.
I’ve started moving into adding fake captions to vintage sci-fi magazine covers, because they’re too damn funny.
This one I realized afterward is pretty similar to an earlier one I did, but if the shoe fits…
Cats, gotta love ’em, eh?
Occasionally you find a book cover sooooo perfect…
Here’s one I’m particularly proud of.
It’s kinda rare that I encounter multiple editions of the same book that merit the fake book title treatment.
This next one is a rare fake book title where I thought of the title and then scrambled to find a book cover that would work. Thank you, Sweet Valley High!
One of those magazine covers that immediately spoke to me.
I had this next cover sitting in my library for probably years before I suddenly thought of something that amused me.
Sometimes, a facial expression is all I need for a title.
I’m still kinda amazed that they were able to get away with the image on this next book cover.
Almost caught up…
Sometimes I impress myself with how well I can remove the original title while keeping the background.
I could probably have done this same joke with a lot of gothic romance covers, but this is the first one that it really struck me.
And for our grand finale for this edition, which is appropriate considering Twitter might have collapsed before I do more covers:
Well, that’s it for this edition! The next edition might be “Fake Book Titles on Mastodon!”
