As the latest instalment in their ever-expanding repertoire of culture-as-seen-by-Google-Street-View, The Guardian have created a series of images showing the precise locations where some of the most iconic album covers in history were captured. The legions of music fans can now visit these places from the comfort of their bedroom, which will hopefully cut down on crowds for the unfortunate residents.
From the Beatles’ Abbey Road to Nirvana’s Nevermind, these music album covers have one thing in common: they’re iconic and well recognized. Artist Harvezt has taken these popular images and given us a brand new perspective on them by reversing the scenes in his series The Dark Side of the Covers.
Etsy creator Joebot has come up with a slew of original music album prints inspired by our favorite movie and tv shows. You can “listen” to Wyld Stallyn’s new album, Be Excellent To Each Other, The Bluths album, Come On, Walt And The Bad Breakers’ Blue Sky, or my favorite, River Tamm And The Fireflies’s Serenity. Each order comes with a colorfully illustrated front and back print of the ‘musical album’.
