I've always enjoyed Tull's woodsy look.

Image
Because junk yards are always cool. Sepia makes 'em even cooler.

Not the best looking Zep album cover, (Houses of the Holy) but I do like the confounding black object in the center of each of the photos. Like peering into some future in which this device has taken on multiple uses around the home.

I used to own a plaster replica of one that was signed and numbered. Sadly, I had to sell it for gas $$ so I could get back home again :cry: I'm sorry I put myself in such a situation.

...and my personal choice for no. 1 best album cover of all time:

Smart, witty, provocative, visually sublime, yet poignant enough.

All greats for their own reasons.

This one raised up like a school desk

This one had a big rolling paper in it.

There was a release of this where the photo was raised and changed depending on the angle you viewed it at.
