SLEEVEFACE: BE THE VINYL PUTS NEW SPIN ON ALBUM COVER ART

But the recently published hella fun book of album art Sleeveface: Be The Vinyl by Carl Morris & John Rostron (Artisan) breaks the mold by presenting album covers in sight gags in which music fans pose with their fave album covers (like the ones below), with the covers covering their faces (hence: "be the vinyl" subtitle).

The art contained in Sleeveface: Be The Vinyl, which just about any music collector will find irresistable, is one of those things that many of us have done at some time with one or more album covers, but no one (until now) had thought of presenting in a nicely packaged book form. In fact, since the book was published last month it has inspired countless individuals to do their own "Sleeveface" and forward them to the official Sleeveface website to be posted, including the Christmas themed one above and the ones below.
