This is for the book lovers among you. You might want to order a copy of 'Art & Vinyl', a book that focusses in-depth on works of art created specifically for an album, composer or musician. The book looks amazing, showing reproductions of more than 200 LPs from the mid-20th century to the present.
The book begins with Pablo Picasso’s 1949 depiction of the dove of peace, printed directly on an audio disc. Significantly, the recording was Paul Robeson’s Chante Pour La Paix (Singing for Peace). Art & Vinyl also includes works by artists as disparate and wide-ranging as Ed Ruscha, Marlene Dumas, Cy Twombly, Yoko Ono, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Barbara Kruger, Robert Rauschenberg, Sol LeWitt, Sophie Calle and Andy Warhol.
