Design Find: Website Book Covers




French graphic designer Retrofuturs imagines the past, present, and future colliding to create an uncanny-yet-familar set of images. I find his play on website "vintage book covers" intriguing...do you see these as a social/political act? What is the message here?

the facebook one i think is especially telling.
social networking started out a lot more freeform than it is now, things like myspace made customising easy and let you learn a lot about the internet and networking and people in general.
facebook is so uniform in its capacities that it is making everyone on it uniform too.
the message, then?
i like that one a lot.
