Sleevage is a blog that I stumbled upon, the other night. It’s purpose is to discuss cover art from LP’s to contemporary CD covers usually from a design point of view, and to critique what works and what doesn’t. I think it’s interesting as the maintainers of the blog usually get responses from the actual artists who’ve worked on the album covers. And as a result, the reader gets to hear first-hand the artistic process behind some of the most iconic and commercially distributed art there is.


The Bronx: Self-titled.


Rolling Stones: Some Girls.
I remember the first time I saw this in my father’s record collection.


Rolling Stones: Sticky Fingers.


Vega 4: You and Others.
