Cover Smother: Marina & the Diamonds Make Single Covers Worth A Second Glance

Tuesday, July 6, 2010

Reiteration from a post on my Tumblr, but I have to give two snaps in "Z" formation and a late hall pass to Marina and the Diamonds for some impressive single covers from her Family Jewels debut project. Single covers are usually cascaded aside at times (who buys physical singles anymore?), but in some ways, the single covers tend to look even better than the album covers. Marina disclosed once on her Twitter some eons ago that she got the idea for all her cover arts from old Interview magazines and pop art such as Lichtenstein and Warhol. Since I love a good scribbly font and some splashes of color, these are right up my alley. The rest after the cut.
