Didn't I read at some point that stupendously long threads cause trouble for FSM, performance-wise?
Would it be a good idea to start Custom Cover Art II?


A suggestion too positive to ignore. To get things underway: French Connection Part II


Not easy listening by any means: The Exorcist


Cleaner, simpler: Bullitt


Working on this was the first time I'd noticed that figure of Sam Bowden near his eye: Cape Fear

Before this second thread of wonderful alternate artwork works its way to page 2 and beyond, is there any way we can keep track of all of the titles? A running list at the beginning of the thread? Some kind of time-consuming, daily task that someone other than myself will need to maintain?

It would be most helpful when needing to dig through 200 pages of posts, looking for that beautiful new artwork.

I suggest the OP add the link to the original thread in his post so its not lost to time.

Lovely idea in theory; just a shame of course that so many of the earlier posts in the original thread now have broken-image links, meaning we can't see the artwork any more - and in many cases can't even know what film it was for :-/

Maybe, an idea would be to have everyone who's sharing their work here, to share the link to their hosting album or page.
The link to mine is in my profile.

Such a list would have to be updated to remove broken links.

I don't think it is possible to link to specific posts, unfortunately.

Good idea. Also a cool French Connection II cover that I will now be using!

raferjanders, unfortunately I don't own the UK version of You Only Live Twice, in fact I have never come across it. The French Connection II cover looks great, thank you. Do you keep your flickr page updated?

For anyone who wishes to use original LP art, try this site for nice quality scans: https://lpcover.wordpress.com/author/adanach/

Raferjanders, I really love your recent 'The Bride Wore Black' cover but I was wondering if you could possibly do a variant for the new Quartet recording crediting Fernando Velázquez and the Basque National Orchestra? It would be most appreciated if possible!

My request would be to name the title of the score underneath the image or as part of the post somwhere. At least that way, you can do a word search.

The problem for me arises when I'm trying to find a cover (they are superb, by the way, thanks to the incredible designers and artists who come up with them!) is that the images contain no text so a word search on the page is useless. Sometimes others will put in their thanks or comments and the name then appears, but otherwise it's a case of scrolling through. That's fun, but when you're trying to find one during an anally retentive iTunes artwork update evening, it can take a while!

Good thinking - I'm going back and adding the titles into my posts from the Part I thread (where not already present).

That's a fine start. Thank you!

Yeah, I like this idea too. Those words searches will help quite a bit when this thread grows bigger. I try to stay on top of each and every post but sometimes it's easy to miss some great alternate artwork, or you make a later purchase and want to find that alternate artwork that didn't seem as important at the time.

Can you give an example of a cover art word search?
Thanks!

You just use your browser to do a word search on each page. The FSM board allows you see up to 100 posts at a time. Therefore, if you're looking for a specific cover, if the name of the film is typed next to it, you can word search each page. OK, there are about a dozen pages (each of 100 posts) in the original Custom Cover Art thread, but word searching each page would take a lot less time than scrolling through every image.

Good call - I've added titles to those above and will continue from here on in. Have also updated my hosting site & profile.

A Hatful Of Rain


The Bride Wore Black
