Album Covers Designed by Andy Warhol

2014-07-20 2

Really, was there anything that Andy Warhol did not do?

*Andy Warhol* is indeed an artist in every sense of the word. Known mostly for his works in pop art, printmaking, and film, Warhol had also done work in drawing and illustration, photography, digital art, and, as it turned out, designing album covers! Of course, you probably have already seen his work for The Velvet Underground & Nico’s eponymous album starring his iconic banana illustration. However, it wasn’t a one-off thing; apparently, Warhol had designed about 60 album covers in the course of 40 years beginning in the late ’40s! His clientèle included John Lennon, Paul Anka, The Smiths, The Rolling Stones, Thelonious Monk, and Kenny Burrell!

Have a look at a sampling of Warhol’s album cover designs below!
