This visual history of the style and image in design of album and CD covers stretches from the 1940s to the present day. Structured chronologically, it focuses on individuals, music scenes and subcultures, including: punk, surfers, pyschedelia in London, Tamla Motown, disco divas and DJ culture. It is an account of the extensive creative cross-fertilization between designers, art directors, photographers, musicians and record labels.
