Two of the things I loved as a kid was football, of course, and flipping through my parents old vinyl LPs.
The covers often seemed to me as interesting as the music contained within the polyvinyl chloride discs they held. Imagine if some of the greatest footballers in history had recorded albums. On second thought don't, as some of them have and they've been awful. New York-based graphic artist James Taylor imagined though what the covers would look like if our favourite players had been actual musicians, as he matched their personalities and backgrounds with the type of music they would have likely produced.
The results below, as I'm sure you'll agree, are simply stunning. To see more of James Taylors work, check out his website at: http://pennarellodesign.com/
