Design Beck's new CD cover

cover materials for Beck's new CD, The Information

Beck's new CD, The Information, hits the shelves today, and this may be one new release where you want the actual physical artifact, not just the iTunes download(*). That way, you can make your own CD cover. The CD comes with a set of stickers and a sheet of grid paper, letting you create your own one-of-a-kind cover art. You can also upload your designs to one of Beck's websites for a chance to have your design used as the static image for later press runs of the CD.

Dmitri Siegel has a great article on the CD cover, and where it fits in the sweep of modern art, on Design Observer.

(*) Of course, if you're righteously angry about Apple's DRM, you've already passed on iTunes purchases.
