Strangely Soothing Photos of Record Sleeves Arranged by Color

If you’re anything like us, there are few things that give you more pleasure than a shelf packed full of vinyl LPs: everything delights, from the distinctive smell of albums that have been around for a few decades to the hints of cover art — not to mention the musical discoveries such a bounty of records promises. So we’re probably predisposed to enjoy George Benson’s Colour of Music series, for which the British multimedia artist and designer arranged armloads of albums by color, creating aesthetically satisfying gradients and Abstract Expressionist-style vertical stripes. Click through to see the strangely soothing series, which we discovered via Feature Shoot, and visit Benson’s website to learn more about his work.
