You might not 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.
"Joseph Haydn: String Quartets Opus 50" LP design, 1964, by an anonymous designer. A fantastic geometric abstraction, taking cues from musical tablature, atop a watercolor background in pink wash. Framed in a black record frame and ready to hang. This gently used vintage product is in good condition. Shows some signs of age. Some minor surface wear. Since this item is being sold as a piece of graphic design, playability of the LP is not guaranteed.
