The Bigger Picture: Famous Album Covers Outside Their Margins

by ChinaBambi

A web design company named Aptitude gathered an interesting collection of famous album covers – from the Beatles to Michael Jackson and from Justin Bieber to Adele – and extended them to show what they imagine might have been happening outside their margins. “The Bigger Picture” is a quirky tribute to album covers as an art form.

Album cover art used to be meticulously created to portray some kind of message that the band or artist was trying to convey,” explain Aptitude. “But in this digital age, buying an album has become less about buying a physical package to buying a digital version out of convenience.

So in honour of a once coveted industry standard, we take a look at some of the most iconic album covers over the years and put our own spin on them by revealing ‘the bigger picture’.
