Yeah, his very looks could even pretty much function as a financial asset, should he want to retire to a less busy life in the future  ... ;D .

This is how to deal with the label logo color: You use it elsewhere for something important and relevant (SIBELIUS here). Texts are easy to read on the dark sky. Well done cover art.
Spatial distortion is a serious problem deteriorating headphone listening.
Crossfeeders reduce spatial distortion and make the sound more natural
and less tiresome in headphone listening.

I don't think Pierre Henry recorded an album based on cutting up a violin with a saw, but then I'm not familiar with all his output. :-\

Georgy Dorokhov's 'Concertino' (2010) is a work where the soloist destroys a violin with a saw, a drilling machine and a hammer, accompanied by shouting etc. But it's much later than this cover ...

I guess that works isn't performed often with a Stradivarius...  ;D

How about this 555 pages Book+ Box-set three CD's

LE ROYAUME OUBLIÉ  :P

One of the prettiest looking art-work sleeve, this is HESPERION XII so
this is predictable in term of quality and it sounds awesome too...

...who'd have it in their bedroom: a desperate, clueless, uninspired designer with a headache...

The cover art I like.

I do love Naïve covers! Bold, challenging and fun, even if they've little or no relation to the music they enclose (in point of fact, how many covers actually do, besides images of composer or performer/s?).

John Martinez did some of my all-time favorite cover designs for the Clemens Krauss Ring des Niebelungen set.  His work is held by the Library of Congress, among other institutions.  Edit: oh, and the recordings are equally great!   8)

Me too DBK - It's my favourite of those Marco Polo NYM covers, although they are all good.

One of my favourite CD covers:

And a favourite LP cover:
