Album art is indelibly linked to our collective musical memories; when you think of your favorite albums, you picture the covers. Many photographers, illustrators, and art directors have become celebrities from their album artworks-the best examples of which will go down in history as permanent fixtures in popular culture. Paying tribute to this art form, Rock Covers brings you a compilation of more than 750 remarkable album covers, from legendary to rare record releases. Artists as varied as Elvis Presley, The Beatles, The Sex Pistols, Pink Floyd, The Cure, Iron Maiden, and Sonic Youth are gathered together in celebration of the cover art that defined their albums and their cult status. Each cover is accompanied by a fact sheet listing the art director, photographer or illustrator, year, label, and more, while nearly 250 records that marked particular turning points for a band, an artist, or the music genre, are highlighted with short descriptions. This far-reaching catalog of visualized rock is contextualized with insider interviews with five professionals who shaped the history of rock, and by top-10 record lists from ten leading rock collectors.

"We know music is for listening to, but when album sleeves are this great they deserve their time to shine. Rock Covers is the ultimate rock'n'roll art book, with over 750 (yep, seriously) covers that range from well-known to really rare releases. This is one to show off to your friends." "...as is the case with any TASCHEN book, you can rest assured it will look as good on display as it will when you're flipping through the pages and listening to some Pink Floyd." "And here they all are, in this great, big, fat Rock Covers book from TASCHEN. Just looking at the images of these covers (and many, many more) brings back musical memories; they're very evocative..." "...The material is wonderful. The subject merits so thorough and authoritative account and caption details are good..." "...a full anthology of familiar - and wonderfully obscure - rock albums." "...a lovingly and illuminatingly annotated journey throughout decades' worth of striking, historical album sleeves."
