A friend in Germany is working on a book of exotica album cover art and is making a presentation to a publisher as we speak. He's got a nice selection already and has maybe already contacted a few of you with exotica websites, but I told him I'd start a post to collect info.

Rather than post the covers which would make everyone crazy (many photos are already in other posts) , how 'bout posting the album info. Title, LP #, etc. (or a link to the post with the photo) Then he can cross reference and get in touch with people later.

If you wouldn't be comfortable sending your album somewhere for photographing that's understandable, but hopefully some of it can be done with scans, email, and photoshop!

Thanks in advance and I'll keep you posted on the progress.

Good luck with the book. I have had no replies from publishers regarding my own personal "Book of Exotica" but I am still working diligently on it. Let me know if I can be of any assistance (off list if needed).

I was hanging out at WACKO store in Hollywood and I saw a book already published on that same topic! It's all Exotica album covers. It's called something like EXOTICOPIA or something like that (or maybe I'm thinking of Pornocopia: Going Down in the San Fernando Valley). How is this book going to be different?

The book is called exoticquarium. It doesn't appear to be strickly exotica, but mostly a "swanky" album cover art book judging from the preview on Amazon. It would be cool to see a book of Polynesian music album covers from the 50's & 60's too. There's a ton of Hawaiian, Tahitian and "Island" LPs from that era and many have very cool, tropical album covers. Good luck on the book!!!

On the topic of polynesian music album covers:
I just published my website and following the downloads link you can find a number desktop patterns designed to be tiled.
Some I found on the web (a good number even with this site!), some are from my collection.

here’s the url:

Have fun!
