By the early 1960s, jazz record labels had established a pattern of creating stylish and contemporary artwork for their artists' records, while the pop industry was predominantly using jaunty portraits of the musicians overlaid with block type. This review of the decade's album covers, compiled by legendary cover designer Storm Thorgerson of Hipgnosis, traces the development of the art form in over 200 examples, chosen for their artistic or cultural importance rather than the significance of the music.
