Black Minimalist Album Cover Design.
I love colorful eye-catching album cover artworks but this minimalist cover design looks stunning too. The Copenhagen-based graphic design studio Re-public created this black cover design for the album “Lektion III” by the DJ collective Den Sorte Skole aka The Black School.
Re-public: Trying to translate the vast complexity of Lektion III into any kind of figurative motif or illustration, would only result in a deficient and inferior representation. So the triple-gatefold album cover is simply black. Black like the vinyl records the music is created from, black like the gloomy mood of the melodies –and black like Den Sorte Skole itself. The included 40-page booklet is tightly set with words and numbers, printed in all black ink, offering comprehensive background information and history about the musical work.
