Striking collection of artwork from over 50,000 record covers put together by graphic artist Tadanori Yokoo, including many of those he designed himself. The artworks exquisitely laid out by Yokoo span a range of surreal, occult and futuristic designs. Here the 'Meditation' of the title refers to Yokoo's intention of sequencing this popular imagery to tell the story of the creation myth.
