Old record buyers like me were never in doubt, the covers, the posters and the visual images are all important parts of the music. That's nothing to be ashamed of. Take a loook at "Supersonic. Visuals for music" by Robert Klanten and Hendrik Hellige (Eds) (Die Gestalten Verlag, Berlin 2007). Here they present several modern artists/designers who make record covers, posters and so on. I have to say, I just want to buy more records, so watch your money. Several Norwegian designers are presented here,like Kim Hiorthøy, Martin Kvamme, Made, Halvor Bodin, Skin Design, Grandpeople and Rune Mortensen.
How about this old memorybook with album covers?
