I was thinking about electronic distribution – indeed, not a surprise for any of our long-term readers. However among my usual speculations, it struck me that electronic distribution is changing cover art.
Think of how used we are to cover art. It's on our albums, it's on our books, it's on our games – and also in advertisements for those products. It's omnipresent and at times surprisingly impressive (paging Boris Vallejo and Michael Whelan).
Only now, with electronic products, things are changing.
