David Chestnutt's Psychedelic fairy tales

Illustration // Monday, April 30, 2012
Let’s Pretend was a series of fairy tale recordings released in the US in 1970. The sleeves are illustrated by David Chestnutt and shows a great example of the soft whimsical style that was so prevalent in the early 70's.

The masterful illustration and design work that appears on old record covers never ceases to amaze me.
