Designer Butcher Billy explores the darker side of love in these concept book covers inspired by a master of horror.
Heartbreak is a wonderful thing. You get a free pass to eat loads of chocolate, you find out if your tear ducts are still working, and nobody will blame you if you play melancholy music all the time. For graphic designer and illustrator Butcher Billy, the soundtrack to heartbreak also provides artistic inspiration.
In his latest project, Butcher Billy has taken classic heartbreak songs and looks at the dark side of their lyrics. The result is a series of covers and vintage posters that reimagine tragic love songs as novels written by one of the masters of horror: Stephen King.
