Outside Material: The Cover Art of Preservation Music


In 2001 Andrew Khedoori and award-winning designer Mark Gowing founded an independent record label with a singular aim: to provide like-minded listeners with good music and congruous design. Inevitably, Preservation Music’s groundbreaking packaging and cover art became essential to the label’s evolution. Gowing’s intriguing artwork reflects his commitment to experimentation in graphic abstraction, typography, and photography, all expressed through effective communication. With an essay by Dan Rule, this first-rate volume showcases the label’s thoughtful, and music-inspired design since 2010, with full-size reproductions of its most distinctive covers.
