As you vote remember to vote on the following criteria:

  • The design looks like it could be a real album cover
  • The design the fits the style and attitude of the music on Karen’s solo album
  • Creativity and originality of the design

Vote on this page for your favorite Karen Carpenter album covers. You can vote for as many as four.
You can only vote once.

    Such talent! A couple (D and Q) could serve as pic sleeves for the singles. I wish I could vote for more than 4. Wow. Better than the professionals! “Z” looks like Karen is enclosed in the CBS eye logo. I liked R and L too. I didn’t like the idea of “I” – Karen being reborn. But all such talent here! Beautiful work – KC would be proud of you all.

    many great choices. my favorite is letter C, i feel it best represents the feel of the music on karens solo album. the title “starlight” comes from the lyric of the song guess i just lost my head. i love that karen is looking into the dark sky full of stars.

    Wow!! :) Like that was totally awesome to see all the choices submitted & vote for 4 favourite Karen Carpenter album covers. Miss Karen Carpenter (03.02.1950 – 02.04.1983) would be really stoked to see such talent from the fans. Karen, you must be getting a real kick from your view seeing such devotion from your fans. Karen, we miss your tremendous presence, both inside & outside. It’s our loss that you’re not down here. However, it’s Heaven’s gain that you’re there. You were a star / angel on Earth & will remain a star / angel in Heaven. ¡Te quiero mucho! A Karen Carpenter fan4ever!! :) xo xo Trevor :)
