Yesterday, on Twitter, Elizabeth Belsky, a senior marketing manager at Hachette Books, shared her “little personal project of the month: reimagining modern horror films as trade paperbacks from the ’70s and ’80s.” And um, they’re incredibly awesome—the perfect blend of nostalgic design and contemporary reference. Just what you need to take your mind off the actual horror going on all around us, if only for the briefest of moments.
My little personal project of the month: reimagining modern horror films as trade paperbacks from the ’70s and ’80s. (Shoutout to @grady_hendrix‘s PAPERBACKS FROM HELL for the inspiration.) It is… fun. pic.twitter.com/AlYdKTrogJ

And because October is the season of giving (candy and other things), Belsky has even shared the high-res PDFs she used so you can make your own. All I can do is take this as proof that there is still a little bit of good in the world. Also, I know what I’m doing for the rest of the day.
