The Album Cover Album
A stunningly designed review and celebration of the greatest album cover designs from the 50s to the 70s, Roger Deans innovative volume was first published in 1977. This new edition recreates the lavish 12 format to celebrate the enduring appeal of vinyl, and maintains the superbly themed pictorial compositions of each double-page spread. Edited and compiled by Dean with Storm Thorgerson, the Album Cover Album features over 600 sleeves in full colour, and showcases the astonishing diversity and excellence of design that the medium produced in its first three decades. The whole package is updated with a revised design treatment, fresh typography, and a new foreword. The result is both a retro collectible that will have music lovers scouring attics for their cherished vinyl collection, and an essential reference work for a new generation of artists and designers.
