When two beautiful worlds collide

The World Cup is nearly upon us, and everyone’s getting excited – none more so than the people at classy print company Dorothy (the people behind things like the Alphabet of Rock and the Periodic Table of Sexual Terminology).

They are spending the buildup to the tournament mashing up classic albums and iconic football moments, with excellent results - they’re doing 24 in total, which will be on their Instagram (cunningly alternating with images of wall-enhancing products they have available for purchase) in the run-up to the beginning of the tournament on June 14th.

The beautiful game: meet beautiful cover art.

Bless your eyeballs and let them feast on these creations.
