Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

A fascinating survey of cover art (TASCHEN's 25th anniversary special edition) Record covers are a sign of our life and times. Like the music on the discs, they address such issues as love, life, death, fashion, and rebellion. For music fans the covers are the expression of a period, of a particular time in their lives. Many are works of art and have become as famous as the music they stand for?Andy Warhol's covers, for example, including the banana he designed for The Velvet Underground. This special edition of Record Covers presents a selection of the best 60s to 90s rock album covers from music archivist, disc jockey, journalist, and ex-record publicity executive Michael Ochs's enormous private collection. Both a trip down memory lane and a study in the evolution of cover art, this is a sweeping look at an under-appreciated art form.

I'm a fan. Anything that has to do with music and design I can get into. I wish they could have crammed a few more covers in thought. I had so much fun thumbing through it.

Album covers and posters were the art of the 60's teenager. 1000 Record Covers is a great showcase for this artform. Dig in and enjoy a slice of history.

Perfect book for any music fan. There is some great and let's face it, some maybe not so great, stuff in here. From the classic and expected to the weird and wonderful. As with all Tashcen books, it is exquisitely executed. Only wish maybe each cover had an entry about its content, the band, the cover artist etc. to provide that extra content oomph.
