STARSTRUCK - THE ART OF JAPANESE PICTURE SLEEVE
Not a Deep Purple book, but this may interest fans who still enjoy and collect vinyl on a wider level.
Basically it's a fab collection
of Japanese single sleeves from the 60s onwards. The covers come from
a number of record company archives in Japan, with close on a
thousand sleeves featured in full colour. Track titles, label and
release date are given for every single, with notes about each act.
Volume One covers A-M so Deep Purple are included, with every sleeve
illustrated. A selection of Gillan covers are also included, as well
as obscure singles by bands like Jerusalem (produced by Gillan),
Episode Six, etc.
