Anthology of Soul & Funk: 500 cover pictures
The groove collection "Funk & Soul Covers" contains 500 legendary cover images of African-American music and thus represents a beguiling visual anthology of Soul & Funk. Here psychedelic and black power, social conscience and sexual liberation, authentic black and white photography and surreal comic style meet. The book contains very rare covers as well as classics, which all together symbolize a musical era. The designs are brilliant, daring, sometimes totally weird and mostly insanely beautiful. The music for these covers is by James Brown, Marvin Gaye, Curtis Mayfield, Prince and Michael Jackson. The book also contains interviews with leaders of the music industry. Furthermore, texts on the cultural environment of the cover creation underline the unique prints.
