Alex Bartsch - Covers: Retracing Reggae Record Sleeves in London
Photos by Alex Bartsch
29.5 x 19.9 x 1.7 cm
Publisher: One Love Books
To augment the photographs, Bartsch and Newman have traced and interviewed people that were involved in the album in some way, be it the original artist, photographer, designer or somebody from the record label. Excerpts from these interviews, which provide rich cultural and historical context to the album covers, are included alongside each photograph.
Visually stunning and contextually fascinating, the book will appeal to those interested in reggae, vintage album cover art and the historical documentation of London and other parts of the UK, as well as the broader evolution of popular culture in Britain.
