    Following the success of Jazz Covers, this epic volume of groove assembles over 500 legendary covers from a golden era in African American music. Psychedelia meets Black Power, sexual liberation meets social conscience, and street portraiture meets fantastical cartoon in this dazzling anthology of visualized funk and soul.

    Gathering both classic and rare covers, the collection celebrates each artwork’s ability to capture not only a buyer’s interest, but an entire musical mood. Browse through and discover the brilliant, the bold, the outlandish and the sheer beautiful designs that fans rushed to get their hands on as the likes of Marvin Gaye, James Brown, Curtis Mayfield, Michael Jackson, and Prince changed the world with their unique and unforgettable sounds.

    Featuring interviews with key industry figures, Funk & Soul Covers also provides cultural context and design analysis for many of the chosen record covers.

    “My favorite book is Funk & Soul Covers. It contains more stimuli than I could make use of in 20 years. That said, I don’t really need stimulation… if at all, then for purchasing records.”
