Description

Sexy, provocative, playful, beautiful: from their earliest days, LP covers have been objects of art and fascination. This celebration of album artistry presents more than 350 of the best covers, and departs from the usual approach by organising the images by visual theme. Many of us remember the iconic album-cover images that defined our collective and individual histories - such as the smoldering pinup girl on the Cars' Candy-O, the plaintive baby following a dollar bill through water on Nirvana's Nevermind, and Andy Warhol's controversial zippered pants on the Rolling Stones' Sticky Fingers. From perennial classics to lesser-known gems, here is the LP art that shook, rattled, and rolled us through music's early formative years.
