Richard Evans, ex-Hipgnosis designer and art director for The Who for over 35 years has designed album covers for a diverse range of music genres

His book, The Art Of The Album Cover, celebrates seven decades of sleeve design from the early covers of Alex Steinweiss in the 1940s, through the Cool Jazz of the Fifties, the pop and psychedelic revolution of the Sixties, the golden age of the album cover in the Seventies, the New Wave of the Eighties, the Britpop and grunge years of the Nineties, and the iPod generation of the Noughties.

These books have been personally signed by Richard Evans himself.

You can read a taster article by Ricahrd Evans in his 2010 article for The Independent: The Album Covers that made it Hip to be Square.
