Cool. I like looking at similarities in covers. It's easy to see themes, similar designs, etc.

I have an old book called the Album Cover Book, published in the mid-70s. I wonder if there's been an update since, or something similar published more recently?

There are new versions of that book.

I like this one, for the spinning moiré wheels on the front cover and inner gatefold. Superpsychedelic. One of my favorites in my collection.

 


"Soul Kiss" by Spectrum also has a great transparent gatefold sleeve with an integrated design that can be seen through the clear vinyl platter. It also was filled with clear and blue gel for the "psychedelic globule" effect. Mine (and everyone else I know who owns it as well) unfortunately sort of dried out over the years, but it still looks really cool. The CD package fared slightly better.

It takes me forever to fold them up the right way, so that the end result actually looks like Marc's face and not sorta-kinda-like-Marc's face.
