Stories Hidden In Images: A Designer Has Created Book Covers Made Of Random Stock Photos
Alan Moore, the author of the comic V for Vendetta, noticed once that people tend to imagine their own lives as stories, and they browse them as in a movie – by rewinding to an appropriate moment.
The truth is that we are a narrative genre – we just love to listen and to tell stories. First, we listen to fairy tales read by parents and with time we start looking for new ones in books, comics and movies.

For me, this image is a depiction of loneliness. I’ve imagined an elephant that is the last elephant on the planet after a nuclear disaster. He travels on a cloud of radioactive dust and dreams of meeting a soul mate… The title of this book would be “Atomic Elephant”. Continue reading »

Adobe Has Just Launched A Clothing Line With The Worst Stock Photos
Adobe team has just launched a line of clothing featuring some of the worst stock images ever, and the weird part is that they actually look pretty cool (on slender and attractive models at least).
