BioShock, Portal, Skyrim Reimagined as Little Golden Books


We’re all gamers here, but at some point in our youth, before video games became a core of our existence, children’s books were the medium we used to learn important lessons and escape to magical worlds. And no children’s book series is more classic than Little Golden Books.

But what if our favorite video games were adapted into children’s books? Illustrator and concept artist Joey Spiotto (aka Joebot) explores this fantasy with his series of Little Video Game Books, re-imagining modern gaming greats BioShock, Portal, and Skyrim as fake Little Golden Books. What a genius idea!


The Littlest Dragonborn, The Cake is a Lie, and Me and My Big Daddy aren’t actual books with pages of pictures and text to flip through (bummer, I know). They are cover art concepts for what video games could look like turned into Little Golden Books. Joebot is selling off a limited number of 8×10 prints of these covers as well, either $20 each or $50 for the whole set.

Check ’em out at Joebot’s blog.
