I just came across this book that looks to be pretty interesting. It’s called “For The Love of Vinyl“, and it covers some of the amazing/iconic album art that the U.K. based Hipgnosis team created for some well established acts. I would assume that their most popular work is Pink Floyd related, but I’m sure that reading up on how all the covers came to be would be just as interesting.
It’s funny, I recognize a lot of the covers they have done, but know nothing about some of the bands, is that bad? That may or may not be a testament to how good the covers are, I’m not sure.
