Description:

Language: English,Spanish . Brand New Book. As a DJ, Toni Rubio had always wondered if some records got played more just because they looked good. Rubio, now a graphic designer, has selected these hundreds of vinyl maxi-single sleeves--the covers for 12-inch remixed singles--to be reproduced in glossy color for further study and pure enjoyment. The artists range from Grandmaster Flash the Furious Five, shown on the front of The Message carrying a boom box and wearing gold chains, to Depeche Mode and Moby, by way of scores of forgotten bands of the 80s whose one good-looking record is having an unexpected second moment in the spotlight. Work is paired for harmony in theme, font and composition, like Sylk 130 s Last Night a DJ Saved My Life and The Reason s When the Funk Hits the Fan, which share a bull s-eye motif. Engelbert Humperdink and Simply Red s leading man, on the other hand, lounge in studio recliners. References to visual and musical trends of the late twentieth century--pop, minimalism, hardcore, hyperrealism, electronica--will speed readers on a journey through the recent past and replay, with pleasant nostalgia, the soundtrack for some classic audio moments.

Synopsis: As a DJ, Toni Rubio had always wondered if some records got played more just because they looked good. Rubio, now a graphic designer, has selected these hundreds of vinyl maxi-single sleeves--the covers for 12-inch remixed singles--to be reproduced in glossy color for further study and pure enjoyment. The artists range from Grandmaster Flash & the Furious Five, shown on the front of "The Message" carrying a boom box and wearing gold chains, to Depeche Mode and Moby, by way of scores of forgotten bands of the 80s whose one good-looking record is having an unexpected second moment in the spotlight. Work is paired for harmony in theme, font and composition, like Sylk 130's "Last Night a DJ Saved My Life" and The Reason's "When the Funk Hits the Fan," which share a bull's-eye motif. Engelbert Humperdink and Simply Red's leading man, on the other hand, lounge in studio recliners. References to visual and musical trends of the late twentieth century--pop, minimalism, hardcore, hyperrealism, electronica--will speed readers on a journey through the recent past and replay, with pleasant nostalgia, the soundtrack for some classic audio moments.

Product Description: In "12A" Sleeves", Toni Rubio offers a careful selection of maxi-single record cover art. Since the mid nineteen-seventies, the graphic artwork that has appeared on 45-rpm maxi-single has traveled a heterogeneous line, drawing from diverse influences and idioms. With abundant references to pop, minimalism, hard core, hyperrealism, electronic and other tendencies from the past thirty years, "'12A" Sleeves" is a journey through the recent past, allowing readers to re-live and re-visit many of the songs and covers that have provided the soundtrack for our lives. The covers in the book include records from all music styles, spanning the twenty years between 1980 to 2000: Communards, soft cell, Blondie, De La Soul, Kurtis Blow, Sylvester, Tone Loc, Westband, Moby, Line, Frankie Goes to Hollywood, Talk Talk, The The, Soul II Soul, Prince, the Pet Shop Boys, Simply Red, and Basement Jaxx.
