“Classique“ introduces 777 of the most inspiring classical LP covers from its heyday, documenting groundbreaking art work and cover culture that is typical of its epoch. Ranging from romantic motifs, naturalism, abstract art, psychedelic and surreal experimentation to supernatural artwork and pure unadulterated kitsch, the diverse examples of classical cover design assembled in the book are immense.

Compiled by avid record collector Hort Scherg, the cover art featured in this book is taken from his substantial collection and presented in fifteen chapters. Each chapter is dedicated to the stylistic approaches significant to each decade from the 1950s to the 1980s, the variety and characteristic trends for countries such as the US, England and Russia, the different musical genres, and the record companies of the times including Deutsche Grammophon, Decca and Capitol.

This book is not only for aficionados and creatives, but also for everyone interested in visual culture.
