If your eye is caught by the host of colorful pen-and-ink caricatures on the cover of Ricardo Covolo’s 101 Artists to Listen to Before You Die … just wait until you look inside.
Written (by hand!) as a diary tracing the history of music Johann Sebastian Bach to Chief Keef, the book is chock-full of portraits in Covolo’s distinctive, evocative style. This one will be treasured by music aficionados, art-lovers, and general readers alike.
