Super collectable book on the iconic design of the incredible ECM record label.

The ECM recording label's contribution to the fields of jazz and contemporary classical music is unparalleled, and its success story has been visually enhanced by the striking covers designed under Manfred Eicher's art direction by Barbara Wojirsch and Dieter Rehm. The book presents chronologically ordered reproductions of over 500 covers from the innovative ECM label. Additionally, renowned jazz essayist Peter Ruedi relates the history of the ECM label and designer Lars Muller comments on the evolution of the covers and on ECM's unmistakable aesthetic signature.

Featuring the cover art of releases by Art Ensemble of Chicago, Jan Garbarek, Don Cherry, Meredith Monk, Keith Jarrett, Evan Parker, Pat Metheny and many more.
