“Invisible Roots: A Queer History of Rock”

Invisible Roots: A Queer History of Rock

Urban Outfitters, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, 1996

Description

This article appeared in Slant Holiday 1995, Issue #5: Roots Music. We think it demonstrates excellence in design for the music world because of its symbolic references and visual appeal. Most notable are the invisible guitar player (left-handed) and visible guitar: the music is apparent while the musician’s sexuality is not.
