Studio Blackburn

The Art of 12x12

Blog — Covet The Cover


Over the past 18 months, Studio Blackburn creative director Ryan Jones has been regularly contributing to Covet the Cover, an Instagram account dedicated to the art of the record sleeve.

Set up in 2018 by Chris Turner to celebrate circles that go into squares, the account has attrached a dedicated following of fans that equally appreciate the 12” format.

Now with contributions from Hugh Miller, Kam Bhogal and Ryan, Covet the Cover has ammassed an impressive archive of almost 600 sleeves, each detailing the history of the artist(s), the stories behind the ideas and the creatives that have brought them to life.
