Taschen Music Icons: Vinyl Records and Cover Art

Updated: Jun 8

A compendium of images showcasing some of the best artworks of the music industry since the 1940s--most notably designs adhered to the center of vinyl records and featured as cover art on vinyl sleeves and jackets--Taschen music icons speak to generations of art directors, historians, collectors, illustrators, dealers, photographers, taste-makers and marketing execs., music enthusiasts and audiophiles, and graphic, interior, and set designers. However, their power to inspire and transform lives is boundless.


These art books signify some of the "Greatest Of All Time" (GOAT) images in the history of design, music, entertainment, and media, with rich contextual insight and cultural meaning into the technologies and mediums that made them possible.


Bearing witness to and purchasing these iconic artworks instigates further investigation and discovery into the sound recordings, vinyl records, performances, and material culture from which their stories embark. These icons showcase some of the greatest artworks in design and music history, opening up and stirring conversations and debates about the role of aesthetics in visual and aural culture, shaping socio-political domains of life.


Displayed and interacted with as coffee table books or memorabilia whose pages serve as visual aids to worlds of possibility and exploration, these eight iconic artbooks are not only a gateway into the interests and subjects of their collectors, but also sources of inspiration opening up worlds of unbridled creativity, innovation, and investment.
