Five Hundred 45s: A Graphic History of the Seven-Inch Record Book.

Flavorwire turns us onto a new “music” book which hits us directly in our obsessive collector souls.

“From Frank Sinatra to Foo Fighters, Five Hundred 45s: A Graphic History of the Seven-Inch Recordchronicles more than half a century of vinyl-single art, all reproduced at original size… Compiled and written by album designers Spencer Drate and Judith Salavetz, the book groups its 500 subjects thematically, rather than chronologically. Collectively, the images represent the best use of art, illustration, photography, and typography in the packaging of an analog format that has survived through the digital revolution.”

Available now from Amazon.
