Album Cover Art of Sun Ras Saturn Label HC

Product Number: 9781683966586


Author: Various

Artist: Various

Publisher: Fantagraphics Books

Drawn from private collections, this is the first comprehensive collection of the Saturn label's record covers, along with hundreds of hand-designed, one-of-a-kind sleeves and labels decorated by Sun Ra and members of his Arkestra. In his 45-year recording career, he issued an epic number of albums and these records were sold at concerts, club dates, and by mail order. More than just packaging for a slab of vinyl, they are works of art in their own right. The books also includes essays by Sun Ra catalog preservationist Irwin Chusid, noted Ra scholars John Corbett and Glenn Jones. This book is a tribute to the covers and to the uncredited visual artists and their rich imaginations.
