"Produced at nearly actual size, with photographs of the original works, along with entries detailing the story of each album, this catalogue is a compendium of sumptuous delight." -Crave Online "Warhol is among the greatest album-cover designers of all time, with a few classics that every record collector has to have. The Rolling Stones' "Sticky Fingers" with a giant close-up of a jeans-clad crotch, working zipper and underwear underneath was pure Warhol--proactive yet populist, and hard to ignore. His peelable banana on the cover of "The Velvet Underground & Nico" (1967) with the suggestive pink banana underneath and giant signature below it is without parallel. Many, many more album covers have been virtually forgotten, but all show the care and craft Warhol brought to even the most routine commercial work." -The Pittsburgh Tribune
