Designed for visual impact, artistic statement, political statement, or some combination of all three (while still promoting the record itself), vinyl LP album covers through the 1970s filled record store shelves with everything from superbly crafted and essential imagery to smudged and smeared graphics that rejected any association with "art." Aubrey Powell-co-founder of the studio Hipgnosis, which produced such iconic covers as Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon-here presents more than 200 of the era's most influential and unforgettable covers, for such performers as the Grateful Dead, Yes, Roxy Music, Led Zeppelin, David Bowie, Patti Smith, the Rolling Stones, the Ramones, and the Sex Pistols.
