Jazz LP covers from the 1940s to 1990s TASCHEN

I’ve seen this “Jazz Covers” book for a while now and after stumbling across a ton of beautiful typographic + illustrated album covers on pinterest, I couldn’t wait to share a few of my favorites. Most of these classic covers were designed by Reid Myles for Blue Note Records. It’s cool how the design of these covers mimic the expressive nature of the music on the albums. Design inspiring art indeed. I can’t wait to get my hands on this series of books from Taschen. Here are a few of my favorites below. Get into it.
