Jazz Covers, Hardback


Part design history, part trip down musical memory lane, this anthology of Jazz album artwork is above all a treasure trove of creative and cultural inspiration.

Spanning half a century, it assembles the most daring and dynamic Jazz cover designs that helped make and shape not only a musical genre but also a particular way of experiencing life.

From the 1940s through to the decline of LP production in the early 1990s, each chosen cover design is distinct in the way it compliments the energy of the album's music with its own visual rhythms of frame, line, text, and form.

To satisfy even the most demanding of music geeks, each record is accompanied by a fact sheet listing performer and album name, art director, photographer, illustrator, year, label, and more
