Here’s another highly entertaining album art by the CD cover guru, Stefan Sagmeister. The guy surely has compassion for the bored people like me who are tired of seeing the same old album covers. Thank you, Stefan! This is for Pat Metheny Group’s twelfth album titled Imaginary Day. The group wanted something extra special for their cover that would really get people’s attention simply because it’s their twelfth. They needed a dash of creativity to their cover so it would stand out.  And here’s what Stefan did…

The icons above are actually codes and they represent letters. When translated, the codes above read “Pat Metheny Group. Imaginary Day”.  Every piece of text, except for the album credits, was replaced by and image code, even the track listing on the back. The images represent the mood & songs of the album. The cover did use a blue “belly band” to make sure fans actually knew to pick up the album. The actual CD was used as the image cipher, with the CD’s design cut into segments and transparent part of the CD showing the alphabet. You rotate the CD in the case to reveal the different codes.

The perfect album to buy when you have lots of time to kill.
