Which led the British company Aptitude to design a creative spin on famous album covers by revealing 'the bigger picture'. What happens when you zoom out? They've done an amazing job with the above mentioned albums, as well Bruce Springsteen's Born in the USA for instance, or Michael ... Continue Reading
