Provides the first comprehensive overview of “artist's covers”. The extensive archive of the Dutchman Jan van Toorn – one of the most avid collectors and greatest experts on the subject – served as a treasure trove.
The featured works range from surrealist designs by Salvador Dalí to covers by pop art icons such as Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein, Robert Rauschenberg and Jean-Michel Basquiat to works by the Viennese Actionists and contemporary creations by Jeff Koons, Damien Hirst, Banksy and Ai Weiwei.
Another major focus are the designs of artists who were close to Fluxus and who frequently produced music during happenings, performances or events and published their own works on LP.
