Classic Records as Penguin Books!

Huw Gwilliam beautifully re-designed a bunch of classic records mimicking that signature Penguin style. Pure genius.

    awsome

    this is great stuff – all the world weary worn covers look amazing. some of these recent albums art work extremely well to this book style -the warp stuff/ belbury poly (have a look)/ and stereolab have gone all out to do this maths text book or benelux graphic design style. i hate to call it retro-future but its vintage now and modern then ! (same meaning) but easily my favorite is a RE- working of the licensed to ill. it stands ot as the leading idea and is very well executed xx love it

    re: licensed to ill,
    i don’t think it works very well. rendering the art in such a generic style adds nothing of value to the original, removing the logo & serial # from the tail kills the visual gag and i’m not quite sure what distressing it has to do with anything. two more points – by making it a square the paperback book connection is weakened and not showing the back removes the punchline.

    it can be expressed by the equation (se1+ se2) – C = –t
    (mixing two stolen elements without the addition of a concept equals a waste of time)

  • emily

    a no to the back cover then?
    – i do agree a little bit, the point was that on first seeing the album it had a wonderfully detailed, really sleek cover but not until most people got it home did they bother to notice the smouldering wreck on the back.
    i wouldnt call it a wate of time though, it completes a really awesome set, purposley made in a certain, unique style.

Artist JR Makes the Louvre’s Glass Pyramid Disappear

You may remember JR from his silent protest with Darren Aronofsky last year (click here for previous post). This time around the French artist has covered the Louvre’s massive glass pyramid with a black and white rendering of the building behind, creating the effect that the landmark has disappeared. The installation will be messing with selfie-seeking tourists from now until June 27th. More images below!
