The 1960’s Artist Illustrating Social Media [images]

Taking knowing out of the equation and using of only imagination, how would a 1960’s artist, who possibly can’t even begin to imagine the possibilities of the internet, illustrate some of the web services we know and love? French artist Stéphane Massa-Bidal did just that- designing Penguin Classics-like bookcovers for ten social media services, including Twitter, YouTube, and Wikipedia.

The result? A beautifully vintage, mind-opening series. They can be bought as prints, and would make a great addition to any techo-lover’s bedroom.

Which one is your favorite?

My favorite is definitely the YouTube one. It’s so funny. What would you add to this list of services to be vintagized? :)
