Remember records?

"Remember records?" Antoine de Beaupré and Jeffrey Frankel ask in their new, 470-page survey of contemporary artworks created specifically for vinyl records and record covers. Well you will. This amazing linen-bound volume reproduces more than 200 super-rare first editions from de Beaupré's collection. "Our album of albums begins in 1949 with a drawing by Picasso printed directly on the surface of Paul Robeson's "Songs of Peace," and ends with an image of a taxidermied menagerie by Sophie Calle," de Beaupré and Frankel write. "In between are supreme outliers like Richard Hamilton, whose indelible un-artwork forever defined the Beatles' white album; Christian Marclay, whose non-sleeve allows his record without a cover to accumulate a lifetime of scratches; and Gerhard Richter, whose oil painting directly on the surface of Glenn Gould's revered "Goldberg Variations" leaves Bach's composition see-able but forever unplayable." Robert Frank, Yayoi Kusama, Andy Warhol, Ed Ruscha, and so many others are included herein. Not cheap, but worth every penny. Featured here is Robert Longo's cover for Glenn Branca's "The Ascension," 1981.
