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.
