Best Music Covers 2014

besta_music_covers_2014_designplayground

Cambiano formato in base al supporto, risentono del periodo storico di pubblicazione, subiscono gli attacchi della multimedialità, ma le copertine dei dischi restano “l’immagine” della musica per eccellenza. E così grafici, illustratori, fotografi o gli stessi componenti delle band sono chiamati a rappresentare visivamente il racconto musicale inciso su vinile o altro. Quella che segue è la selezione delle 20 copertine di album musicali per noi  esteticamente più significative del 2014, rigorosamente in ordine sparso.
