I am a huge fan of LibriVOX. I download recordings on my iPod regularly, but there is no artwork that I can associate with the recordings. I realize this is not high on LibriVOX.org agenda, or the listening experience.

I felt having some artwork to identify LibriVOX recordings would be a fun thing to have. I thought I shall go ahead and suggest one (and contribute in my own way). Here it is Image

What a neat idea. Due to the sheer number of people recording for Librivox, and some of the automated file conversions done for us when we upload our files to archive.org, I don't know if it would be technically feasible to embed the image into the mp3 files. However, mp3 savvy listeners with a good tag editor (or even Itunes) could batch embed the image into Librivox files.

I've added the image to the Promotional Material area on our Wiki. Thanks for a great idea and a neat contribution.

Wow that's cool but it won't fit on my mp3 player. :wink:
