For the past year, most of the Coverart posts have consisted of a photo of two albums (above).

Today I’m experimenting with a vertical series of individual LPs.

Interested to know if people prefer one or the other.

      I do remember buying that Beast LP from a market stall. The sallow lank-haired stall-holder smirked, ‘Good cover, eh?’.
      I replied, with all the dignity I could muster, ‘I’m only buying it for the newspaper cover’… And received a 24 carat ‘Yeah, right’ look in return.
      I just hope he’s viewing these Newspaper Cover posts. Neh, neh neh.

  2. Vertical series (the Slow reveal) or photos side by side?
    I like juxtapositions (but maybe that just reflects how my mind “works”).
