Art of the Album

2Album Contest Webpage

Printmakers throughout the world designed, printed, and submitted these record jackets featuring a fictitious band named after an historic typeface. Designers were encouraged to get creative using printing and typographic terms and themes throughout the design. All of these jackets were either letterpress printed or screenprinted. Each print was made in an edition of 10 (unless otherwise noted). Four of each print and three complete sets of all the prints will be for sale to benefit The International Printing Museums Educational Programs. Congratulations to the winners and honorable mentions.
