Anyone who’s ever purchased a vinyl LP or single knows it’s about more than what’s in-between the grooves that matter. It’s also the buying experience and often times the album art as well that adds to the experience. From splash art to picture discs and shaped vinyl, it’s the records themselves that sometimes boast a valued aesthetic once revealed from their respective sleeves.

Extraordinary Records works to document just that – featuring over 500 remarkable records from over the years. It’s available as part of Taschen’s Bibliotheca Universalis series that bridges photography, music, and design to celebrate the value vinyl offers as an artistic form of expression. Additionally, compelling insight into the motivation of the album art and each artist’s visceral motivation behind the art is included as well – all within over 600 pages of entertaining insight suited for any household coffee table.

Purchase: $20
