Format: Hardcover
I bought this as I love both album cover art and the era Aubrey Powell (the co-founder of Hipgnosis) has chosen for this collection, and I wasn't disappointed. Album covers include those of Patti Smith, the Ramones, Kraftwerk and Pink Floyd, to Captain Beefheart, Shoot and Weather Report. This is a comprehensive and eclectic selection of artwork, and one for both the coffee table and the serious appreciator of graphic art and design. Highly recommended.

What an amazingly talented guy Aubrey Powell is, without him Rock albums would have sounded great but not looked half as interesting. Like many creative folks he sees things the rest of us don’t, a real modern day artist if ever there was. My favourite album he designed is still Led Zeppelin's "Houses of the Holy", truly iconic!

I was expecting some sort of essay on each cover but is entertaining enough to have this beautiful covers reproduced on large pages. Worth the money invested IMO.
