“Steinweiss designed liquor bottles, posters, a magazine, pamphlets, book covers and titles for TV shows, but he’s best known for creating the ‘grammar’ of record sleeves: icon, logo, music, styling and, above all, synthesis of form. It’s pretty hard to think about where the American graphic design scene would be without him“.
"The Inner Sleeve“ DJ Spooky on Alex Steinweiss, pioneer of the illustrated LP sleeve.
