From the Publisher. Blue Note remains one of the most influential jazz labels of all time, and its cover art is a virtual time-capsule of cool. Blue Note: Album Cover Art gathers nearly 400 of the legendary covers, spanning the 1940s to the 1970s, and features the greatest work of legendary Blue Note art director Reid Miles. Simple and sophisticated, moody and alluring, these covers continue to influence designers and excite jazz aficionados today. "One glance," as Esquire said of the original edition, "and youll know where the essence of cool remains." This paperback contains album covers (in paperback) previously published in two large-format volumes as Blue Note (1993) and Blue Note 2 (1997).

The first of many oversized softcovers on album cover design (and still the best).
