iRECOMMEND: COVERSTORY: Album Cover Art

As a self-proclaimed music nerd, I've been a fan of the label/bi-monthly music magazine/digital download site/publisher and winner of "The best Zine of 2008" Wax poetics. My friend, Amir Abdullah (label manager and member of the duo Kon & Amir), hooked me up with a copy of their dope publication COVER STORY: Album Cover Art, a treasure trove of some of the most beloved, obscure and hilarious record covers out there. I recommend this to anyone with an interest in pop culture & art, retro graphic design aesthetics, or with a love for vinyl culture.
Here are some of my favorites:)


I suspect The Howard Hanger Trio's A Child Is Born album cover on the left inspired one of the greates hihp-hop records, Nas' Illmatic
