- Cover Artwork -

Cover artwork plays a vital factor in an audience’s perception of music. Album covers became renowned for being a marketing tool and an expression of artistic intent. In 1938, Columbia Records hired Alex Steinweiss as its first art director. He is credited with inventing the concept of album covers and cover art, replacing plain covers that were used as “record albums” dating back to the 1920’s. After his initial efforts at Columbia, other record companies followed his lead. From records to cassettes and CDs to digital covers, album art has evolved tremendously over time, but its impact has managed to keep its important relevance.
