My husband collects vinyl. Records, that is. We have been spend a lot of time at used record shops when we go on vacation. I like to check out fabric and quilt shops and he likes the used record stores. I have found a new way to enjoy my time in the record shop, checking out the album covers! Many of them are quite inspirational from a quilting perspetive! I have come across quite a few artists that I like and want to collect.
It started with Saul Bass:
This stuff makes me want to run to the sewing machine and make bright bold colourful quilts!
Then I discovered S. Neil Fujita, another designer, best known for the cover to the novel The Godfather.
I soon discovered jazz is where it is at for inspirational album covers!
Then I discovered Command Records and Josef Albers
does this not remind you of one of blogger's early templates?
I am now reading Josef Albers A Retrospective. It turns out he is known for Homage to the Square.
There is nothing more quilty than that!
