PHILHARMONIC

I took these two album covers from Groove is in the Art, a great blog with a beautiful collection of psychedelic and Pop-Art record sleeves. Check out David Day's other 60s and 70s album-sleeve collections here ánd notice the similarity of graphic design with the 60s and 70s motorcycle manuals I have posted before on MotorParade: simple geomatric shapes combined with a clear use of color.
