Arts and Verve

I have always loved the look and layout of the Arts and Crafts album covers.  The colour striped down the left side leading to the A&C logo, and the two colour sample squares at the top.  This was used on pretty much every album they put out from what I can tell.  Well I was just looking up Buddy Rich, and saw how his first album was reissued on Verve Records back in 1999, with the identical layout!

 Here are two examples of the Arts and Crafts layout.

And here are two examples from Verve Records.

No big deal I guess, but I found it interesting, just because for the last 10 years or whatever I have thought Arts and Crafts had a killer look to their album art, which they still do.  I guess credit is due to Verve.
