Featuring 21 designers and studios passionate about music; this collection showcases the best in album design across a myriad of genres. Paired with insightful interviews and essays; the projects in Behind the Album illustrate each designer's vision from concept to cover. Includes designers such as: Lawrence Azerrad - Has designed albums for top acts such as Red Hot Chili Peppers (Californication) and Wilco (Yankee Hotel Foxtrot) and also wrote the foreword to the book. Stefan Sagmeister - No contemporary survey would be complete without the inclusion of Sagmeister's stunning album cover designs for Lou Reed; David Byrne; The Rolling Stones and beyond. Aubrey Powell - Much of Powell's best known work is photographically motivated (Genesis - The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway; AC/DC - Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap); but perhaps his best known; most recognized cover for Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon was a brilliant response to the band's dictate of a design with NO Photography. Pilar Zeta - She started from a digital synthetic style of design; but realized her breakout opportunity by designing Coldplay's A Head Full of Dreams by taking a collaborative handmade organic approach with the band's input. Although Weirdcore is inextricably linked to the bizarre stylings of Aphex Twins; his conceptual work for acts such as Le Dom and Dopplereffekt are equally impactful. Michael Cina's cerebral; impressionistic works for Ghostly Records is beyond description; see it for yourself within these pages.
