In the 70s & 80s, all the old heads thought that the Hipgnosis tag on an album sleeve indicated a benchmark of high quality graphic design, but for a youngblood like myself the tag to be found on the best album artwork was Pore No Graphics.

Those Harvey sleeves are fuckin' INCREDIBLE. Some of the best album art I've ever seen.

I Love seein' great album art. I really like some of the old prog rock gatefold sleeves I've seen, totally naff records for the most part but some great art.

Don't know who the artist responsible is, but I stumbled across this and rather like it.

Reminds me of Maxwell Loren Holyoke Hirsch who's done quite a bit of album art. Not sure though, but here's a gallery of some of his other stuff.
