Not to belabor this too much, but...
In the digital realm it is possible to provide a vast array of full size graphics including video.
Slate products such as the iPad will allow one to admire and look over full size graphics while they listen to their favorite tunes on a home music server or directly through the iPad.
Squeezebox, my home music server, has a web interface, which displays album graphics while the music is playing. There are a bunch of third party products which can be used instead of the Logitech interface which also display album graphics.
Currently on each of my digital music files, I store at least a 600x600 graphic embedded into each file. That art work is displayed on my remote and on my laptop or netbook as I listen to the file. When I finally interface my computer with my HDTV, you can imagine what the album graphics experience might be.
In the future, with each digital album, the artist could choose to include the same high res graphics they might have included for an LP plus video plus future graphics formats that we can only imagine (3D?).
Hell, if I want to physically handle the graphics, I could print them out.
Forrest, I hope you can embrace my enthusiasm for the future because I value your music output.
PS I remember being blown away by Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon while sitting and lying on bunk bed in a dorm room in Baton Rouge in the mid-70's. I think I bought a prism after looking at that LP cover. A couple years later I saw PF in concert less than a block away.
