Item description for CD-Art: Innovation in CD Packaging Design by Charlotte Rivers...

This is a comprehensive collection of the best contemporary CD cover designs, featuring many previously unpublished examples from the cutting edge.

Both design professionals and music lovers will find inspiration from the varied and exciting work featured: from well-known designers like Stefan Sagmeister (Lou Reed and many others) Malcolm Garrett (Buzzcocks) and Peter Saville (Joy Division, New Order) to Tomato (Underworld), Farrow (The Pet Shop Boys), and lesser-known names and in-house teams (such as the RCS designers who worked with the The Strokes and the Foo Fighters) who have used this medium as a widely disseminated platform for experimentation and free expression.

In addition to traditional graphic elements of album cover art -- image, illustration, typography -- CD Art explores experimentation unique to the CD format: from handmade and unusual packaging and materials to textures, interactive designs and marketing incentives. It shows how designers exploit the two and three dimensional qualities of CD packaging to create highly collectible and unique objects that are displayed, handled, interrogated for information, explored for meaning and venerated by fans.

Anyone interested in this book should take a look at the companion book, DVD Art, also by Charlotte Rivers.

Reviews - What do customers think about CD-Art: Innovation in CD Packaging Design?

Very Inspiring  Apr 19, 2006
Great book. A big variety of examples. This book is not about the images which you can on a regular cd sleeves. You won't find here any covers of gangster-rap grills close-up and other bs. This book is about a different way to approach a cd packaging, new ways of expressing the product (music) through the actual cd "cases". Highly recommend for a personal library.
plus don't forget to check out the actual bands and music, most of it is a-rated.
