The Cover Art of Blue Note Records (book), pre-owned

By Graham Marsh, Glyn Callingham, Felix Cromley

Collins & Brown

The Cover Art of Blue Note Records, book edited by Graham Marsh, Glyn Callingham, Felix Cromley with foreword by Horace Silver (pre-owned by Film and Furniture as a reference book)

Shows some signs of age with some loose sewn binding (particularly at the back), but sewn binding all held in place and pages all intact (see photos) and this is a wonderful book of well printed record cover productions.

Over a period of 50 years, the jazz-record company “Blue Note” has acquired a reputation for producing fine album covers, and this is a selection of some of the best. It includes a concise history of the company and a portrait of Reid Miles, who designed almost 500 record sleeves. Some jazz enthusiasts consider a Reid Miles sleeve to be as evocative of the jazz scene as the trumpet timbre of Miles Davis or the plaintive phrasing of Billie Holliday, and his innovations in typographical design have influenced magazines such as “The Face”, “Blitz” and “ID”.

Contains large images of classic record sleeves for Thelonious Monk, Jackie McClean, Sonny Rollins etc.
