This celebration of album artistry presents more than 350 of the best covers ever created. It is from music journalist and BBC Radio 4 presenter, Ben Wardle and best-selling editor, author and journalist Johnny Morgan. The thematic chapters include: art, death, drugs, ego, escape, identity and many more. This celebration of album artistry presents more than 350 of the best covers and departs from the usual approach by organizing the images by visual theme. Many remember the iconic album-cover images that defined collective and individual histories - such as the smouldering 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 through music's early formative years.
