Cover design by Alan Aldridge (born in 1943 in London) is an English artist, graphic designer and illustrator.
During the 1960s and 70s he was responsible for a great many album covers, and helped create the graphic style of that era. He designed a series of science fiction book covers for Penguin Books and later made a big impression with his illustrations for the Beatles illustrated song lyrics. Aldridge also provided illustrations for The Penguin Book of Comics, a history of British and American comic art.
His work was characterised by a flowing, cartoony style and soft airbrushing - very much in step with the psychedelic styles of the times.
