The Blood Brothers
This week on the show my guests are graphic designers Spencer Drate and Judith Salavetz. Their book is called 500 45s: A Graphic History of the 7″ Record. The book is an anthology of over 500 examples of album sleeve design spanning the years 1950-2000. The book covers 7″ designs from a wide range of artists including: Elvis, The Zombies, Nirvana, U-Men, The Beach Boys, Barbara Streisand, T-Rex and many more. Spencer and Judith are award winning designers who have designed album art for the Ramones, Talking Heads Joan Jet the Beach Boys and many others. I spoke with Spencer and Judith over the phone about their book and their prolific design careers.
