Reimagined album covers are apparently the new minimalist posters. In the past few weeks alone, we’ve enjoyed brand-new art for classic hip-hop records, covers inspired by the experience of listening to music, clip-art versions of famous album sleeves, and even covers where dead musicians have been Photoshopped out. But our inner design geek is especially excited about the latest take on the trend, graphic designer David Marsh’s series of album covers recreated in Pantone color swatches. See Primal Scream, Grace Jones, Patti Smith, and David Bowie albums through the eyes of a color expert after the jump, and then be sure to check out more of Marsh’s work on Tumblr and Flickr — where you’ll also find some excellent minimalist posters.
