Around these parts, there are few things we love more than ogling beautiful book covers—and it turns out, even the “book” part is negotiable. Enter: designer and illustrator Matt Stevens’ ongoing project (and soon-to-be book) Good Movies as Old Books, which reimagines some of Stevens’ favorite contemporary movies—from Parasite to Gattaca to Do the Right Thing—as vintage book covers, complete with weathering at the edges and price tags.

The covers all manage to capture both the mood of the film and the feeling of browsing the stacks at a used bookstore. In other words, you might want to allow yourself several hours to scroll through Stevens’ website.

Below are some of my personal favorites (and if you fall in love with one, 100 of them are available to purchase as prints via Stevens’ Kickstarter).
