Rock Art Around the World. Europe is particularly famous for its pictographic cave murals in southern France and Spain.
Franco-Cantabrian cave art can be divided into three phases. In the first or Lower Aurignacian phase, there are engravings drawn with the finger on soft clay walls. They are either simple spirals and frets, or crude representations of animals. There are paintings of animals, the crude contours done in black, yellow or red. And there are stencilled silhouettes of human hands, produced by laying the hand on the wall and blowing the colour over it or tracing the outline.
In the second or Upper Aurignacian phase we find engravings, paintings and charcoal drawings of animals represented with remarkable adherence to nature. The colours used are red and black, and the most essential details of the body are reproduced as well as the contours.
In the third or Lower Magdalenian phase both engravings and paintings reach the highest stage of their development. Proportions and details are masterfully portrayed. In the engravings, spaces are often rendered by hatching. Paintings are black partially filled in with brown or red, and there is expert use of shading. Quite apart from their artistic interest, these representations give us an idea of the life of these paleolithic men.

Music fans are also often avid collectors, and one interesting development in album art and presentation has been a growing market for the deluxe box set market. The artwork and packaging in this field has grown more inventive, sometimes tipping a nod to the original creative process. All these innovations are breathing new life into the album artwork scene, while advances are also being made in motion graphics and kinetic typography.
A whole new world of music new-media awaits. And, of course, the renewed popularity of vinyl means a return of album art design in its original form. Modern superstars such as Kendrick Lamar , Lorde, Stormzy and Evanescence are among 21st-century musicians whose albums showcase interesting album art.

Early pioneers The first signs of change came in the 30s, from pioneering designers such as Alex Steinweiss, whose illustrated covers — for singers such as Paul Robeson, or the classical records of Beethoven — led to huge increases in sales. Jazz-era designs Many of the greatest covers of all time are associated with the post-war jazz and bebop era.
Breaking the mould In the 60s it became fashionable for bands to commission covers from artists and art school friends. Album art as concept Album art as a concept was the new thing, and British designers Storm Thorgerson and Aubrey Powell were at the forefront with the firm Hipgnosis.
