Welcome to Day 1 of the Masks in Art & Design a week long series that will explore the use of monster masks in graphic design, commercial illustration, and fine art…

It seems fitting to begin the series with Album Cover design. Most assuredly, there are many more examples which I have missed. Please leave a comment with any that you can think of and I’ll add them on…

First up is the double 45 for Poison 13 designed by Art Chantry. This design has it all, pop-ups, glow in the dark ink, clear vinyl, and a green band surrounding the whole package is adorned with Topstone illustrations. This is just one of the many reasons why Chantry is my favorite designer…

Here are a handful of other album covers that fit the bill for today’s post…

Mother of Invention – “The Ark” – 1968
Rock City Morgue – “Some Ghouls” – 2003
United – “Destroy Metal” E.P. – 1985
