A spectacular collection of record cover art, beautifully reproduced by Taschen in this book; the huge print size makes for great appreciation of the pieces. Highly recommended. I'll return to David Shrigley's record cover art in a future post as I research his designs further. by allowing the artist or cover designer autograph my covers, and I have many covers so defaced.
