Usually ships within 1 week


Since the mid-1990s, the French design team H5 has produced numerous record covers and visuals for both small and large labels, developing its ethos in tandem with the development of French electronic music, particularly bands associated with the "French Touch" such as Air and Alex Gopher. Ludovic Houplain and Antoine Bardou-Jacquet (H5's founders, later joined by Hervé de Crécy) started out by making sleeves for their friends Etienne de Crécy and Alex Gopher, gravitating towards the use of typography instead of photography and an economical two-color aesthetic. This is the End: Cover Art by H5 focuses entirely on the company's music design, and includes several essays and an interview. It comes with a vinyl EP specially produced for this publication, with contributions from Alex Gopher, Air and de Crécy & Darkel.
