Mmm…album art…


Happy Mondays’ Pills ‘N’ Thrills and Bellyaches; Central Station Design

From: Factory Records: The Complete Graphic Album; Chronicle Books

“Matthew Robertson‘s beautiful [book] is a 500-image, 224-page book that looks less at the label’s musical influence…and more at the indelible mark head designer Peter Saville left on the vidual-arts community. Saville and company’s creative style came to define both the post-punk and early rave scenes–minimal and streamlined in its design yet weighty in its impact.” --Ken Taylor, XLR8R Magazine

I do love me some album art. That's the coolest version of that Happy Mondays album cover I've seen — much more distinctive than this one or especially this lame infringement-free version.

The one you posted reminds me kinda sorta of this Bacchus cover that Eddie Campbell recently featured.

Dean thanks for this. I have seen the infringement-free version and it's LAME. But I get it. The man, he wants your money. Especially if you're an independent artist. But I digress.

Thanks for the link to Eddie Campbell's blog- I've never been there and have been enjoying reading the back-posts...
