Album art adds to our music experience. A great cover can compel us to pick up a record and further check it out. It gives us a first impression; a portal into the music or insight into the creators. Colours and images trigger emotions, stir feelings of nostalgia, give us something new that we’ve never seen before, transport us and inspire us!
