Question Box & logo artwork info

Hello everyone!
It's been a while, again, but I'm back!

We all love (well, I do) the box artwork of amiga software.
Most of them are wonderful works of art and many major software houses (p.e. Psygnosis) have built their entire image on how their game box looked like.

However, there is no information on HOL database about the artist of the box cover or/and the logo (most of the times were different artists).

Wouldn't be wonderful to have this piece of information as well?

I'd like to know your opinion on this one.

Yes, precisely! That's how I thought it could be implemented!

Well, it seems that the whole idea is on halt.
You see, I bumped on a site that talks about the legendary box artwork of the 80's and early 90's.
It merely scratches the surface but it gave me the idea to start digging info about the artists behind those amazing artworks. Anyway, I'll do it for personal use and if anyone is interested I would gladly share the information with our community.

Yes, please do that. If it ever gets implemented, it will make it easier to enter the data in HOL (right at that time you could be going on a trip around the world or the comprehensive file in which you stored the information could get corrupted).
And other people might get interested too (Lemon, MobyGames etc...)
