Pink Floyd's "Dark Side of the Moon" album artwork is the icing on the cake. An absolute masterpiece of musicianship with a cover so perfectly iconic.

David Bowie Celebrates 66th Birthday With New Single

For my departed Bowie poster, I took inspiration from his Aladdin Sane, album. So not to copy the album cover fully I've only used elements such as the lightning strike as I like the colour combination as well so I will incorporate it into my type.

Preview Review (Adele’s 21)

THIS ALBUM COVER CAPTURED MY INTEREST BECAUSE OF ITS SIMPLICITY AND ALSO THE BLACK AND WHITE EFFECT AND ALSO BECAUSE OF THE STAR POWER "ADELE" AND HOW THE PHOTOGRAPHER MADE HER APPEAR NATURAL.

Technically a single cover, but this is too excellent not to include. Bowie's 1974 single Rebel Rebel, taken from his legendary Diamond Dogs release. Bowie poses in full Ziggy Stardust get up, red shag/mullet, knee high platforms, shoulder pads and skin tight bodysuit, perfectly applied makeup and the iconic lightning bolt. Seriously cool.
