Andy Warhol: The Album Covers, 1949-1987

Count Basie, Tchaikovsky, Aretha Franklin, Lou Reed, Diana Ross, John Lennon, and the Rolling Stones all had their music promoted by Andy Warhol's record covers. This catalogue raisonné reproduces the fifty covers, front and back, designed over four decades that bear Warhol's unmistakable imprint. It also includes over 100 additional illustrations, featuring related works by Warhol, photographs of performances as well as documentary images identifying his visual sources. Paul Maréchal explores Warhol's creative process, his relationship with artists and his fascination with all kinds of music. The range of music represented through these record covers, from jazz to classical, and from rock to soul, reveals the breadth of Warhol's musical tastes and his extraordinary ability to combine his artistic vision with the music and the recording artist.

  1. I have the Daphnus and Cloe LP- I knew it was a gem when I picked it up at the Sally Ann for $.25. Is it worth anything? I wouldn't part with it anyway, the book inside has great early ink drawing by Andy. Win-win for me. I love the music and the artwork is something I treasure. Glen
