New Book Celebrates Album Artwork
The history of photography is closely tied to the history of the record sleeve. Total Records: Photography and the Art of the Album Cover explores this relationship, with a selection of over 400 of the most important album covers in music.
The covers are iconic, pairing visionary photgraphers and artists – such as Miles Davis and Irving Penn, Grace Jones and Jean Paul-Goude, and David Bowie and Mick Rock.
Published by Aperture, and due out in late October, the works were compiled by a trio French photographers, with words written by music journalist Jacques Denis.
