You mightn’t be able to really judge an album by its cover, but you sure can survey the cultural importance of LP design in this collection of framed LPs presented by New Documents. Providing the perfect canvas for artists and photographers, the album cover became a forum for innovation in design where the consumer was deemed the final critic.
Benny Goodman Combos / Benny Goodman and his Orchestra 3-piece LP collection, circa 1950, designed by important West Coast graphic artist Rudolph de Harak. Each of these three designs features a different bold background color and a series of repeating photographs of the title performer alongside overlapping clarinet shapes. Framed in a black LP frame and ready to hang.
Good vintage condition with minor surface wear. Some transparent tape repair to the upper seam and notation in black ink in the upper left corner of the red cover. This item is being sold as a piece of graphic design; playability of the LP is not guaranteed.
