Colorful Album Colors
Below are some groovy album covers for you to enjoy. Many of them are from thrift stores, and some, unfortunately, show the grey grime that covers accumulate. Since they are for my own collection (and not to be sold) I can tolerate that...although I'd prefer a clean cover. When looking for cool covers, I tend toward those that have interesting font treatments, geometric graphics, bright colors, cool patterns, painterly artwork, unique illustrations or those, like the Milton Glaser cover, that are created by well-known designers or illustrators.
