Alternative Cover Art
I know some of you use different art as your iTunes cover art and I was wondering if you'd post them. I'm just listening to my edited Beekeeper:
Sweet the Sting
The Power of Orange Knickers
Martha's Foolish Ginger
Barons of Suburbia
Not David Bowie
Intro Jam/Mary's of the Sea
...and looking at the cover - simply the cover from the songbook, cropped - and suddenly history is rewritten and there was never a sub-par album until American Doll Posse. I think with this artwork and edit I could even let her throw on Ribbons Undone (I actually love the tracks not included here, but I like playing around with the edit to make a concise and beautiful album) and it would make thematic sense. Also, the art changes a lot of what I hear in this album, and actually helps me hear a lot of the 'sinsuality' she was talking about when she interviewed during this era.
So what are do you use for some of the albums? I'd love one for ADP that only shows the Tori Doll.
you won't hear me leaving
This is the album art I use for the 'Tori' songs on ADP:
Myself, I use this for ADP.
i'm using something somebody made at the other forum for my copy of Mindwinter Graces but I don't know how to copy it over here. It is the cover of Midwinter Graces as far as I'm concerned.
This is my cover for MG, in case the above doesn't work:
It's this, which JOEY and TallulahBelle turned into a cover with some cool font and cropping:

Oh, I forgot, this is my Beekeeper:
I've got different covers for last four Tori's records. I made them myself in Paint so they're nothing really special, but still they work better for me than the original ones.

Abnormally Attracted to Sin
Wow that made me laugh FreshMownGrass. Thank you for that!!
And at Tonika, omigod your alternate Beekeeper cover is amazing!! I don't think I ever saw that shot before, I love it! I love what she is wearing, and her hair looks amazing juxtaposed with the black of her ouftit. It looks sort of White Chalk-y.
Tonika, I love yours! All of them.
I really do love The Beekeeper; one of my favourite albums. But *sigh*. The album art. It's just such a pity that a great concept just wasn't executed that well for the most part. A couple of those shots do work for me, like the one you've used, Tonika.
But damn it, I love the tour book! The tour book looks A-MAZING. And it's not a new idea at all, mind you. Yet, I think it captures the moods, textures, colours, fragrances, sounds, everything of the album beautifully.
I made this as a joke last year ... but I don't have the album so I don't use it as my iTunes art.

It really is Tori's face, but I can't for the life of me remember which shot I used. I found the silver snowflakes on a model from something else (hence the dark brown hair). And obviously that's not Tori's ear, as it's rather flat against the head.
