Details of a new book showcasing Morgan Howell’s paintings of classic seven inch singles.
Morgan Howell at 45 RPM, published by Black Dog Press, beautifully documents 95 of Morgan’s creations, from ‘Tutti Frutti’ by Little Richard to ‘Heart of Glass’ by Blondie, to ‘Gimme Shelter’ by The Rolling Stones, to ‘Waterloo Sunset’ by The Kinks.
The artworks are shown in full, alongside evocative commentaries from fans of Howell’s work, including The Smiths’ Johnny Marr, Spandau Ballet’s Gary Kemp, comedian Al Murray, journalist Tony Parsons, actress Kay Mellor, Happy Mondays’ Shaun Ryder, producer William Orbit and composer Andrew Lloyd Webber.
The 240 page book features Forewords by Sir Peter Blake and Andrew Marr, plus an in-depth interview with Morgan Howell, exploring his process as an artist and why, for him, music and art are intrinsically linked.
With a 12 x 12 inch format perfectly designed to fit on record shelves, this book is a must for vinyl junkies, music heads and art lovers everywhere.
