During my PhD, 1999-2003, most scientific articles I needed for my research where only available in print. I’d go down to the library and take hours photocopying articles from piles of journals.
I also listened to a lot of CDs and I loved the cover art. I haven’t picked up a CD in a while and I’m pretty sure new CDs are still made, but I don’t know who buys them. The art from new covers goes unnoticed – I haven’t seen one from the last 5 years or more.
Journals still get printed too, but like songs we get the articles online. Grad students don’t spend hours copying in the library, which is great. But some nice covers will go unnoticed.
