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.
"Shostakovitch Symphony No. 5, Op. 47” LP design, circa 1950, by Alex Steinweiss. The graphic red and black background used for this cover is very reminiscent of work by Alvin Lustig. Signed using the "Steinweiss Scrawl" version of the artist's signature, which is very uncommon for albums pressed by Columbia. 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.
