(Publishers review) 'The Art of the Album Cover celebrates seven decades of sleeve design from the early covers of Alex Steinweiss in the 1940s, through the Cool Jazz of the Fifties, the Pop and psychedelic revolution of the Sixties, the golden age of the album cover in the Seventies, the New Wave of the Eighties, the Britpop and Grunge of the Nineties, and the iPod generation of the Noughties.

This is a beautifully laid out book beginning with some fantastic early covers, through decades of sleeves both rare and iconic. Evans' anecdotes are enlightening and amusing. Makes a great gift for a music or design fan.'
