Best Album Covers of 2012

Here we are with the first special post of the year. Considering that I’m a great music lover as well as graphic design, I decided to propose a selection of the best, my opinion, music album cover designs of the year that has just ended. Someone says that the “art” in album covers nowadays is slowly disappearing (compared to the past ones that belongs to music history).. But probably it’s only because the digital era of music has a little bit turned away the attention to the “packaging”. Who knows? Sure thing is that every year something new comes out and so here are 20 wonderful covers that deserve attention.. in a few cases maybe more than the music they represent! Enjoy
