an example of white space? of course, the first thing i thought of was the beatles' self-titled The Beatles, also known as the "white" album. on the original pressings, the uneven text was practically invisible—instead of grey lettering, it was embossed in white. it was designed by richard hamilton, a pop artist, and was intended to resemble the look of conceptual art. the album design also is a stark statement of the beatles music at that time, compared to the psychedelic, vibrant sounds of Sgt. Pepper, released just one year prior.
