Though traditional scores have now become a more rare in studio tentpoles as of late (quick, what’s the theme for The Amazing Spider-Man? Transformers?), the soundtracks to some of the biggest films in history have remained classics. The good folks at Mondo are preparing a re-release of one of the best pieces from composer John Williams’ vast (and impressive) library, and today they’ve unveiled the artwork for the soundtrack: Jurassic Park. It’s an iconic piece of film music, and Mondo commissioned two separate pieces of artwork packaging, one from JC Richard and a limited edition from Dan McCarthy. The vinyls don’t go on sale until June 11th, but you can take a look at the artwork right now.

It’s a movie that fires on all cylinders – from the amazing sense of adventure, a realistic world of tomorrow, awe-inspiring special effects and of course one of the greatest scores that has ever been created. “There are few films where the experience of watching the film is matched only by experience of listening to it, and Jurassic Park is one of those rare films,” said Mondo Creative Director Justin Ishmael.
