Rock Covers, an amazing book published by TASCHEN and authors Robbie Busch (DJ and record collector), Jonathan Kirby (record collector and music writer) and Julius Wiedemmann (art editor and marketing professional), pays tribute to the legendary covers of rock albums, from David Bowie, the Beatles to Elvis and Pink Floyd.

This anthology features more than 750 iconic album covers, from famous to rare record releases, with further details on what inspired the artists behind them and their music. Many of the photographers, graphic designers, art directors have all been featured in gallery exhibitions.

Each cover in the book is accompanied by a fact sheet, with short descriptive profiles for 250 highlighted records. Five interviews with rock insiders add personal insights to the shaping of rock history, while 10 leading rock collectors share their top-10 record lists.

It’s excellent if you’re a fan of these bands. I highly recommend it.
