Eminem’s cover for his album The Eminem Show is very simple but says a lot. At first glance, the album cover is pretty self-explanatory. A stage, and the stereotypical big red curtain, with a microphone stand and spotlight is all a show really needs. When someone looks further, it’s the stance that Eminem is in that says what the album is going to be about. The way he is so small in proportion to the rest of the album, as well as the fact that he is in all black says that the album could possibly be about problems he has with himself or others. The title of the album works very well with the cover.
