Product Description

Amazon Review

This reviewer angrily objected to the advent of CDs on the grounds that four square-inch cover art simply doesn't do justice to the medium. This loving, lavish exploration of music graphics by London-based design practice Intro--who themselves design record covers and direct music videos--shows that perhaps this reviewer was a bit hasty.

The evolution of music graphics seems to have been galvanised, rather than hindered, by shrinking covers to a third of their former size and encasing them in jewelled plastic. Sampler2 leads you through the evolution of this specialisation, from typography to layout to printing techniques, and explores what designer Adrian Shaughnessy of Intro characterises as a search for authenticity that's distinct from the instant gratification we often associate with conventional graphic design.

But mainly this book gives joy by inundating you with page after page of cover art, the graphics printed on the CDs themselves and the little extras--hand-written liner notes, translucent paper packaging and the like--we've grown to expect from the artistry of modern music. --Liz Bailey

I think that the Intro books are superb...along with the two volumes of Blue Note cover art, the book on soundtrack cover art, and the one covering the blues, I think these are essential for anybody interested in the history & development of commercial graphic arts as applied to the music industry. Of course these books will cover contemporary releases, they're put together by a contemporary design firm, after all. It doesn't matter when these designs were made, some of them are still rather ingenious.

This book shows a good selection of graphics, which are mostley used in the music industry,But a lot of it you would have seen before if you buy current music.So i was a bit disapointed by this, But it is a really good book to have if you want to discover whats out and about at the moment in the wonderfull world of music packaging.
