Cover art can be an influential factor in a record's success, and some designs are so memorable that they go down in design and music history - who doesn't instantly recognize the covers for the Beatles' Sergeant Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band or Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon?

Artworks, cultural statements or simple marketing tools? A Brief History of Album Covers takes the reader from the 1950’s to the present day, exploring an array of grungy, glamorous, exotic, funny, infamous and iconic images.

Featuring designs adorning albums from AC/DC to ZZ Top, this remarkable collection will be a source of interest and fascination for every music fan.
