Video games as books

ajhateley15.jpg

Oh, books. What with all those hand-held 3D game-playing, email-reading, movie-watching gadgets and what with that evil Kindle, they're slowly becoming a little obsolete.

As some sort of tribute/cruel joke, illustrator AJ Hateley has imagined a number of book covers for some of her favourite video games. In an imaginary world, our shelves would be stacked full of them. Oh and these too.

Which one would you fancy reading the most?

You can see more of her work here.
