Robert Crumb’s Record Covers

…………………………………………………………………………………

Robert Crumb first began drawing record covers in 1968 when Janis Joplin asked him to provide a cover for her album Cheap Thrills. It was an invitation that the budding artist couldn’t resist, especially since he had been fascinated with record covers since he was a teenager. This early collaboration proved so successful that Crumb went on to draw hundreds of record covers for both new artists and forgotten masters. They have now been collated in a book ‘The Complete Record Cover Collection’
