According to our latest AlbumArtExchange Blog poll, A Very She & Him Christmas by the duo comprised of M. Ward and Zooey Deschanel is the best album cover for the week of October 25, 2011. The cover received 29% of the votes cast by our readers. Audio Video Disco by Justice was a close second with 23%. There was a tie for third between Brian Wilson's In the Key of Disney and John Prine's The Singing Mailman Delivers, which both received 16%.
The winning cover features a photograph of Ward and Deschanel by Autumn de Wilde and a retro design by Kate Harmer. This is a good example of why using a talented photographer and a simple design often results in a striking album cover. There isn't anything that beats us over the head with a Christmas theme. It isn't too cute, which would be a temptation with anything related to Deschanel.
