    VHS Video Cover Art: 1980s to Early 1990s HC (2015) 1-1ST

    1st printing.

    By Thomas Hodge.

    Video cover art is a unique and largely lost artform representing a period of unabashed creativity during the video rental boom of the 1980s to early 1990s.

    The art explodes with a succulent, indulgent blend of design, illustration, typography, and hilarious copywriting. Written and curated by Tom "The Dude Designs" Hodge with a foreword by Mondo's Juston Ishmael, this collection contains over 240 full-scale, complete video sleeves in the genres of action, comedy, horror, kids, sci-fi, and thriller films. From the sublime to the ridiculous, some are incredible works of art, some are insane, and some capture the tone of the films better than the films themselves.

    Hardcover (Horizontal Format), 12-in. x 9-in., 264 pages, full color.

    Cover price $34.99.
