In addition to our on-going vote for the best albums of 2017, I thought I'd open this unofficial thread to celebrate the best artworks of 2017 albums. I'm not the sort of person who goes to galleries but when it comes to albums I'm definitely an art lover.

In no order.

The Bell Witch artwork is probably my favourite of the year. I didn't like the music much, but I can appreciate a truly creepy painting.
