$29.95
Product info

Since the dawn of the record sleeve, photography has played an integral part in the music we love. Total Records: Photography and the Art of the Album Cover is a tribute to the artists and images that have helped to define iconic albums. Originally a traveling exhibition presented at France’s Les Recontres d’Arles, this collection features more than four hundred album covers spanning decades and genres, which together tell the story of how art and music have continually come together. Explore collaborations between creatives such as Grace Jones and Jean-Paul Goude, David Bowie and Mick Rock and the Rolling Stones and Robert Frank, and discover the great images that have given albums their identity, from the Elliott Erwitt photo that graces the cover of Led Zeppelin’s Physical Graffiti to a Weegee shot used by George Michael. Also included are chapters on contributions to the art of the album made by Jean-Baptiste Mondino, Andy Warhol, David Bailey and Lee Friedlander, as well as Francis Wolff’s legendary work for Blue Note and the art of the inimitable design group Hipgnosis. A fascinating look at the place where sound meets vision, this book is a must-have for art and music lovers alike.
