You mightn’t be able to really judge an album by its cover, but you sure can survey the cultural importance of LP design in this collection of framed LPs presented by New Documents. Providing the perfect canvas for artists and photographers, the album cover became a forum for innovation in design where the consumer was deemed the final critic.

Beethoven: Concerto No. 3 in C Minor for Piano and Orchestra LP, 1950, designed by Alex Steinweiss, the originator of the graphic album sleeve. Three teardrop-shaped color fields overlay a sharply angular view of an abstracted piano in this stunningly Modernist layout. Steinweiss' bold sans serif typography is softened by the liberal use of the famed Steinweiss Scrawl. Framed in a black LP frame and ready to hang. Good vintage condition with minor surface wear. This item is being sold as a piece of graphic design; playability of the LP is not guaranteed.
