Bowling Green State University (BGSU) has a blog dedicated to sleeveface photos. So far, they have over 100 photos that use the vinyl collection of the university's Music Library and Sound Recordings Archives. What a fun and innovative way to promote the library.
Armed with vinyl and inspiration, BGSU's Music Library and Sound Recordings Archives started sleevefacing to promote the library and bring awareness to our collection... And now we challenge others to do the same!
It has been quite a long time since I last posted a sleeveface photo. Here is one that made me wonder what else people could have Harry Belafonte stick his nose into besides flowers. Perhaps it could be something unpleasant to go with the angry look on his face. Like maybe a pair of old gym shoes.

This is one of the funniest sleeveface photos I have seen in ages. The lightsaber is a brilliant touch.
Sleeveface 80_Andy Williams 'The Andy Williams Christmas Album', originally uploaded by TheRealWineGuy.
This is a great Christmas-themed sleeveface. The wreath is a nice touch. More like this can be seen at www.sleeveface.com.
The Smiths, Louder than Bombs - Norma Fernandez, Chicago, USA, originally uploaded by Paintmyalbum.net - 2,000 Classic Album Covers Redo.
Last year, I wrote about Paint My Album, a blog that features classic album covers recreated using Microsoft Paint.
The collection has grown considerably over the past year and the covers are now available on Flickr. Check it out. Many of them are quite good for bitmapped imaged.

I found several photos on Flickr of Storm Thorgerson speaking at the Semi-Perminent 2010 design convention in Auckland, New Zealand on Flickr. Check out the entire photoset.
Sleeveface 110_Gino Vannelli 'The Best Of Gino Vannelli', originally uploaded by TheRealWineGuy.
I don't know why, but this sleeveface really cracked me up. The little brown purse is adorable.
AlbumArtExchange user gege has discovered a series of artistic images on Flickr that were created using audio cassette tape as a medium. The audio tape is removed from the cassette and applied to canvas. One image is a recreation of the classic album London Calling by The Clash (right).
We’ve recently seen the art from London Calling album used to adorn a pair of Converse high tops. However this is the first time that I have seen audio cassette tape used to create an image. To make it even more interesting, the audio cassette used was actually one of London Calling. This takes recycling to another level!
I’ve just discovered a collection of 70 vintage classical music album covers on Flickr.com. Many of the covers in the set are by album cover art pioneer Alex Steinweiss, who many believe invented the concept of placing art on the sleeves of record albums.
Steinweiss designed over 2,500 album covers betweeen 1939 and 1973. So, it is far from surprising that many of the covers in this collection from the 1940s and 1950s are his designs.
Most of the covers are in beat up condition. The images are quite large and would be good for beginners to use to practice their skills at restoring album covers.
For those of you who are simply interested in vintage album art, browsing through this collection will be a pleasure. The Flickr user has done a fantastic job of selecting covers and obviously spent a great deal of time photographing them.
Elvis Presley - Elvis’ Golden Records Volume 2 sleeveface, originally uploaded by Stephen Sleeveface.
Surf Punks were formed in 1976 by Dennis Dragon, the son of the Symphony conductor Carmen Dragon, and brother of Captain & Tennille’s Daryl Dragon, and Drew Steele.
I grew up in Ventura, California and owned the band’s first two albums Surf Punks and My Beach, which were released in 1979 and 1980. Surf Punks can best be described as a novelty act. They were fun to listen to and were played on my favorite radio station KROQ.
Currently, there are no Surf Punks covers in the AAX gallery.
