Here lays MS Paint Album Covers Flickr set, an internet artifact of internet times past. It’s a large compendium of primitive to impressive scrawlings resembling album covers, mostly metal, gleaned by Marc Fischer of Public Collections from now defunct site forums. Like bible transcribing monks or portrait-copying artist apprentices before them, these devoted forums-dwellers dedicated a lot of time to the craft. It turned out mad janky, but fun.
