Best Idea Ever: Lil' Inappropriate Golden Books

This has to be one of the coolest ideas ever. Josh Cooley, who is an Animation Story Artist over at Pixar Studios is creating a parody of those Little Golden Books from when I was a kid, under the name "Lil' Inappropriate Golden Books", with the title Movies R Fun! There are several more pages obviously, and are all in the same style as the one posted above. They cover some of the most famous scenes in cinematic history, ranging from films like Apocalypse Now and 2001: Space Odyssey. It's so genius that my only complaint about it is that I should have thought of this first.

You can check out Cooley's blog here, or better yet, buy a copy here when the book goes on sale, for a tentative price of $5,000,000. Yes, I'm sure that's just a joke. You can currently buy prints to hang on your wall however, which is pretty cool.
