If you’re interested in the history of album art, you simply must visit Sleevage. The blog features regular articles about notable album covers and the designers who created them.
Today, I was happy to see an article about one of my favorite albums, Blondie’s Parallel Lines.

Parallel Lines, the third album by Blondie, was released in late 1978. By 1979, when they were finally huge in the States, the band felt the need to start a “Blondie is a Group” button campaign. Even for those discovering the band’s considerable appeal today, it’s so easy to think of Blondie as Debbie Harry and her backing band.
