That is what I miss in this MP3 age...... album art.   Heck, when I used to buy albums, they were lavish and had outside art, inside cover art, sometimes posters, etc.

You can still buy them. A lot of artists (maybe just indie ones, but that's really the only music I listen to) still have cover art and extras. The Decemberists released Hazards of Love in vinyl and it was a whole fold out thing with a booklet. Their CD releases often come with a booklet as well. Same with the Mountain Goats, Belle & Sebastian, Of Montreal and any number of acts out there.

Also don't forget about Record Store Day, where you can score some sweet releases, too.

Hipgnosis were amazing and Storm Thorgerson is a God.

If you miss album art with your MP3s, get AlbumPLayer. It's as close as you can get (right now) to having a physical record collection with sleeve art.

well he is quite deservedly famous, his covers for genesis and Yes pale in comparison to their others. 

Roger Dean is god of cover art for me!
