Gracias por la música-Thank You For The Music
When music fans copy an album for their own collection or to give to someone else they often create their own home-designed sleeve inserts. These do-it-yourself graphics allow the designer to reconstruct or reinvent in accordance to their own particular imagination. This book brings together more than 700 album covers produced by a wide variety of people for their own personalised CD and cassette copies. During the search and selection process importance was not so much given to time or geographical limitations or to musical gender, but rather to graphic interest and diversity. The material has been ordered according to styles and graphic techniques, attitudes and moods, into chapters bearing the titles of well-known songs. So, Alphabet Street includes those centred on typography; Heroes, which evoke the image of the author’s musical idols; Qué será, será, contains abstract contributions; I’ll be your mirror, which recreate the original cover, etc.
