These Little Golden Books make video games extra cute

Because this is relevant to me — an illustrator from California has designed mock Little Golden Book covers based on video game properties. You can buy them as prints on Etsy.

“I recently have been really into the artwork of the classic Little Golden Books,” the creator wrote on his blog. “There’s something very charming about their simplicity, and yet they are some of the books that I remember most from my early childhood.

“As the sun sets on this current generation of video games, I’ve been thinking about some of the classic games that people will still (hopefully) point to years from now and hold them up as games that made a difference, and possibly, for some child out there, Portal or Skyrim will be a memory from their early childhood.”

There’s also some Zelda and Lord of the Rings art in his shop.
