Here’s James Franco, Dressed up as Your Favorite Classic Book Covers
You likely know of James Franco the actor, but what about James Franco the writer? Director? Artist? Franco wears many hats, and in this new body of work (in collaboration with THE THING Quarterly) he poses as the characters in his favorite books.
The result is THE THING Postcard Book: James Franco. The miniature monograph is composed of 30 postcards you can easily tear out and mail to a friend, who will likely do a double take when peering at the cover.
Here are some of our favorites:
1. Just Kids by Patti Smith
2. The Big Sleep by Raymond Chandler
3. On the Road by Jack Kerouac
5. Moby Dick by Herman Melville
