Quote from: Mark on June 14, 2007, 06:34:55 AMActually, no. The top cover would be regarded as better (but still crap) design by an art director.
Quote from: MrOsa on June 18, 2007, 02:58:42 PMI think you're completely missing George's point which is to contemplate these two covers as purely aesthetic objects, graphic design "craft" aside. Now, even though the top cover does not break as many rules as the bottom one, it is, IMHO, much uglier than the bottom one. Just as an ungrammatical sentence can still be more beautiful than a perfectly grammatical but... ugly one. On these terms, the main difference between these 2 covers is that one contains at least a segment of something that could be considered esthetically pleasing (the very decent painting in the middle) while the top one does not contain even one beautiful element to redeem it (unless you're into peepholes that is ).

Quote from: Kullervo on June 20, 2007, 10:23:39 AMIs it just me, or does Iggy look already dead, and MTT is taking him for a ride a la "Weekend at Bernies"? Also, this disc contains some of Stravinsky's most high-minded pieces (like Agon and Aldous Huxley in Memoriam).
Quote from: bhodges on June 20, 2007, 10:29:38 AM That cover definitely does not say Agon.--Bruce
