NMO Design has created sleeve artwork for The Rurals’ Reinterpretations compilation CD. Artwork is an ‘illustrative remix of a previous sleeve [also by NMO], which featured a dandelion in the sunset,’ according to NMo director Nima Falatoori. It uses a ‘1950s illustrative style inspired by the wallpaper patterns and the chinaware’ of that period, he adds. Reinterpretations is available now via The Rurals website at www.therurals.com, before general release on the Peng Records label in September.
