ALBUM COVER ART OF JACK DAVIS
INTRODUCTION & ALBUM LIST
( updated 9/10)
by Tony Maygarden
Longtime fans of MAD magazine will be familiar with artist Jack Davis. Davis is also well-known for his work for E.C. publications line of horror comics, and his promotional movie posters.
The Endless Groove has compiled a gallery of Jack Davis' album
cover art, including a number of soundtrack album covers that were also
used as movie posters. Davis' work is highly stylized, but the covers
here show the wide range of his talent. Most of his caricatures are
comical, but others work as revealing portraits. The most fun in Davis'
covers, though, can be found in the details. His style has been widely
imitated, but you can easily tell a real "Jack Davis" cover
by the signature, always in the lower right corner.
