Art Vinyl Prize
The Art Vinyl prize for best cover has been won by Pieter Bruegel the Elder (ca 1525/30-1569)! His painting Netherlandish Proverbs (1559) on the debut album of US indie rock group Fleet Foxes gained the most online votes. Eugene Delacroix's dramatic painting Liberty Leading the People (1830) came third on Coldplay's Viva La Vida. The only contemporary design in the first three is Roots Manuva's album Slime and Reason, which came second with a green-slime-filled neo-classical eggcup. Yuk, but very effective.
