Taschen know how to deliver a worthy tome and Art Record Covers is the latest to compliment your Sonos system. Spanning six decades since 1955, Art Record Covers showcases over 500 covers taking in modernism, Pop Art, Conceptual Art and postmoderism.

This affirms the increasingly recognised notion that record covers are pieces of art in their own right, art which we can display in our own homestead galleries and feel real emotive connections to.


Art Record Covers lines up contributions from Shepard Fairey, Kim Gordon and Christian Marclay. It’s draws the lines between a slew of sensational fusions between sound and vision including the likes of Keith Haring and Sylvester, Mike Kelley and Sonic Youth, Kaws and Kanye West. Put a needle on it.
