confusing thread title, confusing OP

what is this:

Posted Image

doing in the OP if thread calls for no "words" on the album covers?

do you mean words treated as data by a computer or just words?

"Jesus Christ!" is part of a painting within a photograph. It's not the band name or album title, nor does it assert any visual dominance. Ditto with the album cover for Mirrored i posted



this however:

Posted Image

while sort of the same concept, counts as text, since it denotes the artist/album



The thread title called for textless album covers, but I gave it a little twist.
Posted Image

this is just wrong.



Posted Image

but THIS blurs the lines. i mean, it uses text in an abstract manner. whether it would belong in this thread or not, is up for debate, even tho i'd say "no"

only words that are part of the album title or the band name should be considered text? that doesn't make any sense. text is anything written or printed. thread should be: album covers that lack album title/band name

it definitely doesn't belong in this thread because it has an abundance of TEXT on the cover.

your looking at it wrong. i'm not picking/choosing text to ignore/acknowledge. Rather, was text purposely placed in the image in order to convey information, or does it just happen to exist in the background? i'm being lenient & letting the latter slide


Posted Image

by your stringent standards, yes that is text, therefore shouldn't belong in a thread titled "Textless Album Covers"
but i'm pointing out that it's not being used to create any words. It's textural, not textual, hence the debate


but i came here to post more covers:
