Whether stored in iPods that fit neatly into our pockets, or handed down through generations as prized, polished vinyls, music is an inseparable part of our lives. Our darkest and brightest moments find a friend in some old tunes.
On World Music Day (June 21st), when the globe celebrates the magical and soul-warming power of music, we bring together 10 contemporary illustrators to reimagine forgotten Indian Hindi and English album covers. To push things up a notch, they dig into records from before the 90s and challenge how we represent old school music. These tunes are timeless, but where are the album covers? Each artist gives an album a new identity in their own illustrative style.
