We are only now beginning to understand how it is that the brain acts to comprehend the content of stories. One interesting aspect of comprehension is the evocation of emotions that occurs when we read, hear, or watch a narrative. Emotions are an integral part of the narrative experience and likely one of the main reasons why stories appear to have such universal appeal. Although emotions have long been a topic of neuroscience investigations, the study of narrative emotions specifically has only now been broached.

Alex Steinweiss, who invented the album cover in the late 1930s, has died at the age of 94. Born in Brooklyn, New York in 1917, the son of immigrant parents from Warsaw and Riga, Steinweiss was hired in 1939 to design advertisements for Columbia Records. But he quickly gravitated to creating album covers for the new long-playing 33 1/3 rpm records then coming into vogue.

"They were like tombstones," Mr Steinweiss recalled in a 2007 interview, referring to the covers of the 1920s and 1930s. "I got busy with management and said that RCA/Victor was the main competition and their work was old hat. "I approached them with the idea that it could be more exciting and that it would actually boost sales, despite the increased cost of production."

Mr Steinweiss' first album cover, for a Rogers and Hart collection of songs, featured a theatre marquee with the words: "Smash Song Hits by Rodgers & Hart." Sales jumped 894 per cent, and a new genre, album cover art, was born.
