Digital music distribution is making music less expensive and more widely available, but it is also slowly killing the album cover as an art form. To pay homage to this vanishing art form, Aptitude(aptitude.co.uk), a web design company, created a fun series of images that imagine what the covers of some of our favorite albums might have looked like if they were expanded a bit.
“Album cover art used to be meticulously created to portray some kind of message that the band or artist was trying to convey,” explain Aptitude. “But in this digital age, buying an album has become less about buying a physical package to buying a digital version out of convenience.”
