Word Brooklyn is having a discussion and show & tell/release party for the new book 'Five Hundred 45s: A Graphic History of the Seven-Inch Record'. Event is co-sponsored by Permanent Records.

Compiled by well-known designers and authors Spencer Drate and Judith Salavetz, Five Hundred 45s contains more than 500 examples of striking seven-inch record sleeve design across every genre of music and its great musicians—all reproduced at full size. This gorgeous book includes a foreword by Lenny Kaye, music critic and guitarist for the Patti Smith Group, as well as essays offering diverse perspectives on the subject by avid collectors, industry insiders, and designers. The book is organized into thematic chapters, with a mix of dynamic, visually inspiring pairings on every spread. A discography at the back provides complete information for each sleeve, rounding out this highly collectible volume.

I found the book at my local Barnes and Noble this week and was quite impressed.

After you pick this one up I also recommend 45RPM: A Visual History of the Seven-Inch Record, edited by Spencer Drate.
