This cover art was not what we were expecting. Originally, we wanted the cover to represent the various ways people love music. Having asked a few people to represent “what music means to you” through physical objects, the finished products were all incredible. Incredible and busy. This cover is a simplified version that represents what music means to most people.
The “What _____ Means To You” activity that originally inspired this cover is now a standing segment in Blueprint 2012/13.
