cd cover

The CD Covers program was written to make it easier to create aesthetic designs utilizing the covers of 64 cds arranged in an 8x8 grid.

Written in Visual Basic 6.

Final Result.


I discovered some fairly inexpensive wall mounted CD holders at a used cd store. I thought of how cool it would be to display my CDs as art and so I bought enough of them to hold 64 (8x8 cds). My first display featured my John Williams (Star Wars, Raiders, ET, Jaws) collection, and as it turns out his cds are far better to listen to than to look at. Anyway, I wanted to create a more attractive display and in the name of efficiency and automation I wrote CD Covers.
