As part of his Masters of Branding study at the School of Visual Arts, Tyler Adam Smith is creating 100 covers for books that should be written, from goofy snarks at popular authors to imagined sequels to beloved books.
Designer Debbie Millman, who chairs the branding department, charged each student in the program to come up with a project that demands a daily contribution over 100 days. That’s how Smith came up with 100 Books That Should Be Written. Some of his imaginary book covers are funny; others are glorious pieces of wishful thinking, and some of them would be must-reads if they ever came into existence. There are 83 entries so far.
