Our latest addition to the Album Cones collection comes to us from AlbumArtExchange Blog reader Abe S., who wrote in his email that it seems like an obvious choice. I have to admit that it is one I would have considered doing myself if my Photoshop skills were a bit better.
Peter Gabriel's third album is often referred to as "Melt" due to its cover by the legendary Hipgnosis. The photograph was taken with a Polaroid SX-70 instant camera and modified by either Storm Thorgerson or Gabriel. The cover has been imitated and parodied numerous times.
If you want to participate in the AAX Album Cones meme, submit your 1000 x 1000 pixel image along with the AAX links to the original cover image in the AAX gallery (if possible) via e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. You must also include your name or AAX forum username. You can also upload your images to Flickr and submit them to the Album Cones Flickr Group.
I will publish Album Cones as I receive them. I will not guarantee that your image will be published (but I'm not going to be too picky).
