Les Ondes Silencieuses by Colleen


I haven’t heard this album, the most recent by French musician Colleen (although YouTube has a couple of tracks), it’s being posted here for the Beardsley-esque art. Or is it Bradley-esque, since the bold outlines perhaps owe something to the great Will? Whatever the inspiration, the artist responsible is Iker Spozio whose other music-related commissions can be seen on his Flickr pages, including the original drawing for this CD minus the text boxes.


For earlier examples of the Beardsley influence in album design there’s this post from a couple of years ago. I’d still like to know the artist responsible for the cover of the Gabor Szabo album, Dreams. If anyone has a clue, please leave a comment.

  1. That’s great, thanks for the link. I can’t have been searching thoroughly enough since that page has been there for a while. It’s also featured in this book of jazz cover designs.

  2. Iker Spizio was responsible for the covers and interior art for the last few issues of the much missed Ptolemaic Terrascope. Wonderful Art Noveau / Stanley Mouse inspired work.
    The Szabo album is a great listen as well as looking amazing.
