Avant garde design

Just came across a music blog specialising in avant garde and experimental music.

One group of records on the site really caught my eye.

They're from the Deutsche Grammophon label.

Some beautifully simple graphic design.

Particularly good reference I think for people who design for the web as they show how you can make virtually endless variants on a theme.

Love the way the designers carried the treatment across to the back cover too.

If you click and enlarge the pics you'll also see some very well crafted type.

Hard to believe these covers are almost as old as I am!
