Why You'll Love This Book

Take a trip down musical memory lane- design style. Jazz Covers is a fascinating anthology of jazz album artwork spanning half a century, from 1940s bebop jazz to the decline of LP production in the 1990s. Taking a design approach to jazz history, the book brings together a selection of the most daring and iconic jazz cover designs- each being chosen for the distinct way the artwork compliments the energy of the album's music.

Jazz Covers is presented in an organised easy-to-read format. It opens with interviews from giants within the industry such as art director Bob Ciano and owner of New York's Jazz-Specialist record store Fred Cohen. The records featured are from some of the greatest jazz musicians of the time including John Coltrane, Miles Davis and Dave Brubeck. Each is accompanied by a fact sheet listing performer and album name, art director, photographer, illustrator, year, label, and so much more- it really is a treasure trove of cultural inspiration!

A great gift idea for jazz and art lovers alike, Jazz Covers celebrates the design iconography that helped make and shape not only a musical genre but also a particular way of experiencing life.
