Album cover of the week: In Farm We Trust

For a few years I was really into collecting coins. Lack of time and lack of money (ironically) preclude me from pursuing the hobby any further for now, but I still appreciate some of the classics. Like the so-called Buffalo Nickel, designed by James Earle Fraser and minted in the United States from 1913 to 1938.

1913 Buffalo Nickel

Timeless and utterly American, no? So imagine my glee when I spotted the cover to the latest album from Richie Owens and the Farm Bureau, In Farm We Trust.

Very nice indeed. Looks like they used the more recent 24-karat American Buffalo gold coin as the template, but that design looks great either way.
