You wouldn’t realise it, but some of the first exposure you have to art and photography is through music, and the album covers that present it. That said, I just came across this link, with some of the best artwork in reggae music to this point. Check out the info below…
In this post, we’re taking a look at the cover designs of 42 album cover designs from reggae and related genres. See how Scientist rid the World of the evil curse of the Vampires, say hello to Uglyman, and learn why the colours red, gold and green are so central in reggae and Rastafari culture.
Check out a few more covers after the jump. Check out the full feature here: 42 Reggae Album Cover Designs: The Art & Culture of Jamaica.
