About this title

Synopsis:

The first two volumes chronicling the unique art and design of Roger Dean met with huge critical and popular success. Views (1975) went straight to number one in the Sunday Times bestseller list and went on to sell over a million copies. Magnetic Storm (1984) sold over 650,000 copies. These new editions, reworked to accompany the publication of the third book in the trilogy, Dragon's Dream, showcase the instantly recognizable work of Roger Dean.

Views showcases the first seven years of Roger Dean's work after his graduation from the Royal College of Art in 1968. It includes paintings and graphics; branding such as the Yes typography and the first Virgin Records logo; groundbreaking stage sets; and album art including iconic early Yes covers such as the award-winning Tales From Topographic Oceans. The new edition streamlines the original square format and retains the combination of concept sketches and brilliantly displayed finished work. Featuring a new foreword, revised typography, and graphic openers and identifying icons, Views showcases and celebrates the art that defined an era.

About the Author:

Roger Dean is internationally acclaimed as an artist and designer whose evocative and visionary images created a new genre. Made popular through the medium of album covers and posters, his work has sold in excess of 100 million copies. Roger became widely known in the 1970s for his album cover designs for Yes—including the classic logo now in the Victoria & Albert Museum in London—and a poll of Rolling Stone readers selected five of his designs in the top twenty best album covers of all time.
