it isn’t pink, it’s magenta

Only designers would quibble over such things in a book on album sleeves, and this book tackles the complete early output of the famous Charisma label (their words not mine, part of their original logo!). Some great sleeves well photographed and important for Hipgnosis design collectors as well thanks to some great cover for The Nice and Audience. Our book review is on the site, see if you can spot which album this very mint looking spine comes from back in 1970!
