Geez, I would have chosen the 1954 Fender Stratocaster guitar for a cool design.. and omitted that subway map if it had to be only 20 choices in no special date order.

Here's the whole 20 designs from the article.

Curious choices too. Where's the Polaroid camera? The Volkswagen beetle? Or these? .

Roger: you need to be more tolerant of us young folks who were not around back then the way some of you were <G>

It's Friday. Have drink on me. I'm having one in your honor.

I would not call the Sgt. Pepper album cover groundbreaking or a great design.

Kind of a creepy LP cover that is like a subliminal funeral ( maybe for the original Paul McCartney ).

The image reminds me of the well known Hollywood actors and actresses group photos done on large format Kodachrome in the 1940s Studio system.
