Classic Album Covers of the 60s Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This newly reformatted edition of Classic Album Covers of the 60s features more than 200 of the very best—and, in some cases, entertainingly worst—covers that graced LPs throughout that groundbreaking decade. It takes readers on a lively journey from the wholesome joviality of the Very Merry Macs and Muscle Beach Party, through stylish and sophisticated jazz covers, to the coolest, wildest psychedelic designs of the late 60s—including the Beatles Sgt. Pepper and the Incredible String Bands The 5000 Spirits.
The evolving styles illustrated here provide a fascinating reflection of changing cultural trends during an era when artists sought to smash the prevailing rules—and, in so doing, laid the foundations for cover design today.
