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

    I would love to see the back of the licence to ill. do you think they even bothered to do one?

  • genius work!

    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.

  • Excellent work…love the concept and execution!

  • hasan

    NOW, If the album was available for re:issue OMG!!! I AM BUYING….

  • Really kick ass work. How did you get the work to look so old and used?

Photographer Daniel Ranalli Spends Two Decades Capturing Snail Trails

“Spiral #9” (1996)

 

Massachusetts-based photographer Daniel Ranalli has spent more than 20 years on his “Snail Drawings,” a series which consists of one image of neatly configured snails and a second image of the unique patterns made when the snails were left to their own devices.

While a simple enough concept, Ranalli sees the project as a reflection of the inherent randomness of life and our inability to control the results or elements of a situation no matter how hard we might try! See more of Ranalli’s work below or on display at Classic Photographs Los Angeles January 21-22.
