    Art director Alex Steinweiss first created album cover art in 1940 and with it a new art form which would evolve to be as intrinsic a part of pop culture as the music itself. This Collector’s Edition showcases his unique combination of bold typography and elegant illustration which took the industry by storm and revolutionized the way records were sold.

    Music for the Eyes. The man who launched the Golden Age of album cover design. Alex Steinweiss invented the album cover as we know it, and created a new graphic art form. In 1940, as Columbia Records’ new young art director, he pitched an idea: why not replace the standard plain brown wrapper with an eye-catching illustration? The company took a chance, and within months its record sales increased by over 800 percent. His covers for Columbia—combining bold typography with modern, elegant illustrations—took the industry by storm and revolutionized the way records were sold.
