Over the years we featured several books celebrating the art of the record sleeve, including Jazz Covers and Jazz Covers 2. Art book publisher Taschen and editor Julius Wiedemann have teamed up once again to explore the age of rock music, starting with Little Richard, on to The Beatles, Jimi Hendrix, Pink Floyd, and Sonic Youth. As with their previous books, each cover comes with a fact sheet listing art director, photographer or illustrator. The whole thing is rounded up by interviews and top-10 lists by record collectors.
