Artists and designers reinterpret and reimagine existing album covers


33.3 is an art show of album covers, reimagined and reinterpreted by artists and designers. I like Andrew Kolb's remake of the Beach Boys' Pet Sounds album cover. I'm now using it as the album art in my iTunes library. (Amazon sells the 27-track MP3 album of Pet Sounds that was reissued in 1996 — on the 30th anniversary of the original release of the album — for $(removed))

At one point I was going to re-imagine The Beatles' Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band but then thought "Why do that when I could interpret the album that INSPIRED it?!?" I mean, who inspires the Beatles?! Frig The Beach Boys are cool.

My other favorites include Brent Couchman's design for Surfer Blood's "Astro Coast" record and Luke Bott's version of The Smiths' "The Queen Is Dead."
