Vulture Books

A little personal project plucked from the film/design Venn diagram in my head: Vulture books. It's one part tribute to my favourite design birds and one part utter geekery. It started with me watching a film and thinking "what if that book they just mentioned was an actual paperback that I had on my shelves?", and it spun out of control from there.

Initially, I thought these non-fiction titles would work perfectly as Pelican books (my blue heaven of book design), but then I thought they deserved their own imprint. This involved a lot of ornithological research and a lot of staring at the Death Records logo. Eventually, I managed to draw a chirpy little vulture. He looks a bit malevolent, but still has a cheeky glint in his eye.

Full geek points if can identify the origins of each book.
