Saturday, my guy and I went to the Annenberg Space For Photography and saw the "Who Shot Rock and Roll" exhibit. It felt nostalgic to see the old album covers hanging at the entrance to the exhibit. The main part of the exhibit is the candid photographs of rock and roll artists starting from the 1960s to present. Also, there is a 30 minute documentary that interviewed some of the photographers whose work was displayed in the exhibit. I highly recommend this exhibit if you're in the Los Angeles area.
The other part of this album art weekend was inspired by Jenny Cochran Lee's blog, texterial and her August 20th blogpost about using old album covers for notebooks. It was so inspiring to me. I had fun browsing through the old albums at a local thrift store.
This weekend I made 5 album cover notebooks. I don't have a binding machine so, I used colored binding rings. The edges were finished using colored duct tape. The notebooks are a mixed of funny and cool album artwork. Please excuse the poor quality photos. For some reason I couldn't get the lighting quite right.
