Today just so happens to be International Duran Duran Appreciation Day (we’re not sure why, but the Internet seems to agree)! To celebrate, we’re taking a look at American artist Patrick Nagel’s cover art for the band’s Rio album, pictured here.

Love great album art? Treat your ears to our Rdio playlist, Arty Cover Art, compiled by Dan McKinley of our Graphic Design Dep’t!

Watch a very ’80s live performance of Rio here.
