Design, art, style, culture, food and brilliant stupidity.
Sadly, last July Alex Steinweiss passed away. He was the one who has revolutionized the would of vinyl and music. Before him all covers were exactly the same – just brown and green cardboard, but in 1939 he started to customize them with pictures, illustrations and photography.
Here a small collection of our favourite. Thanks for your great job Alex! Here more covers.
