Marcos Rodriguez and Zé Felipe assembled dozens of last year’s most notable album covers into a continuous color spectrum. It’s a nice showcase for some of the best designs of 2015, and a welcome bit of attention to the form in an age when many music listeners only ever see album covers as thumbnails on their phones.
An idea for next year: it would be really interesting to compare multiple years, side by side, and at a higher level. The site requires a lot of scrolling, which to its credit is a fair presentation of the art, but the macro level below is more illuminating, in my opinion.
