liner notes

Via Everlasting Blรถrt we are directed to this fabulous gallery curated by Reagan Ray (previously) of album cover art designed by the imminent Milton Glaser (see also).
We especially like the appreciative prologue about the intricacies and interlacing of his work and how a custom, one-off typeface might be later expanded into a font. With over two hundred and fifty jackets to his credit and a career spanning six decades, it is a challenge to select favourite but most are represented in the collection above. In addition to the iconic covers Glaser created for Bob Dylan, Harry Chapin and Albert King, we really like the psychedelic look for the cover band The Baroque Inevitable plus this commission for Al Caiola’s Magic Guitars “Music for Space Squirrels,” which you can listen along to below.
