Just like the title says

Material Sources & Procedure

  1. Use the last 3 or 4 words of the from last quotation
  2. Use the article title as the name of the band

Things to take away from this exercise

Do not overwork the design unnecessarily sometimes an untouched picture and simple text layout is all that is required.

There is a lot to be said for simple, uncluttered, uncomplicated CD cover designs
