9 Golden Books That Should Have Been.

I’ve always really loved the way Golden Books presented their lovely illustrated children’s books. Colorful illustrations, simple easy to understand copy. As kids we all spent hours not only reading them but staring at the images on the pages.

Illustrator Josh Cooley, from Pixar has taken a different approach parodying the style, and giving it just a bit more edge. For the past two years, Cooley has been producing a series of images based on iconic scenes from classic movies. These come from “The Godfather, The Graduate, Alien, etc. They are all done in the same style as classic Golden Books, and are just a blast. I wish he had enough time to produce an entire book based on each film, because I would surely buy them.
