It’s been a very New York-y week in my Standard Designs Etsy shop, what with the release of my Lou Reed Transformer print and now this - a print of the Velvet Underground’s debut album as a collection of Penguin books. Each book here represents a track on the album, and they’re all arranged in the order they appeared on the original vinyl LP.
The eagle-eyed amongst you will have spotted that the books are also arranged to resemble the famous front cover of the album - white, with Andy Warhol’s banana print in the centre. As a slight tribute to this and the fact that Warhol produced the album, check out the spine of the ‘Heroin’ book, which is derived from a volume in the series Penguin New Writing:
Quite nice, eh? Anyway, this print can be yours for the very reasonable price of £15, with discounted postage and packing too. It’s available now in my Etsy shop.
