Polish Design: Tonpress Record Sleeves
Posted by Scott
We all know Polish design is amazing, but every now and then you need a good reminder. Karl forwarded me a Wanken post on the Tonpress sleeves you see above. Tonpress was a government-controlled Polish record label in the 80’s and from the looks of it, they had some quality design staff hanging around. If you want to sift through all the links, lots more cover art is here.

P.S. Be sure to check out Karl’s blog, it’s got a new skin that’s dripping with minimal goodness.
