(Publisher overview) 'A comprehensive collection of the best contemporary CD cover designs, featuring many previous unpublished examples from the cutting edge, this volume includes work from well-known designers from Stefan Sagmeister (Lou Reed and many others), Malcolm Garrett (Buzzcocks) and Peter Saville (Joy Division, New Order) to Tomato (Underworld), Farrow (The Pet Shop Boys) and lesser known names and in-house teams (such as the RCA designers who worked with The Strokes and the Foo Fighters) who have used this medium as a widely disseminated platform for experimentation and free expression.

In addition to traditional graphic elements of album cover art - image, illustration, and typography - "CD - Art" explores experimentation unique to the CD format: from handmade and unusual packaging and materials to textures, interactive designs and marketing incentives. It shows how designers exploit the two and three dimensional qualities of CD packaging to create highly collectable and unique objects that are displayed, handled, interrogated for information, explored for meaning and venerated by fans.'
