The importance of creating great cover art is just as important as ever, with many iconic covers being designed in the last few years but - let's face it - the old stuff was the best.

And Sao Paolo-based designer Rodrigo Maia understands this, tranposing a host of recent releases into the past - specifically the distinctive style of old jazz records.

His tumblr "New Records, Old Covers" takes a host of albums by modern day acts such as The National and the Gaslight Anthems and gives them wonderful new covers. We've chosen our favourite 10 below, check out his tumblr for the full set.
