Not your “Best Album Covers of All Time” listicle. We’ll dive into everything from cover art across decades and genres to trendy and niche design elements, specific artists’ discography, and how technology and culture have changed the importance of the album cover.

If you’re looking for inspiration in between newsletters, check out my ongoing archive of cover art.

I’m looking for this to be a free public educational source since there is yet to be full documentation on the art history of album art. But if you have $5/ month to spare, it would be super helpful in furthering my research. Or if you think a friend might enjoy this kind of thing, the best way to pay it forward is just by sharing!
