The Vinyl Factory, in collaboration with The Mott Collection is staging an exhibition of 45 Kraftwerk single covers along with a limited edition publication (cover shown above)

The exhibition will be at The Vinyl Factory Chelsea gallery on September 13 until October 5, featuring 45 covers, from various European countries, drawn from artist and Punk historian Toby Mott’s pop culture collection (regular CR readers may remember we did a piece on his collection of Crass sleeves in our March 2011 issue).

A publication, limited to 300 copies worldwide, will accompany the show, again featuring all 45 covers. This will also feature a 7-inch disc of a 2009 Kraftwerk interview. Each book will be hand signed by Mott and numbered. They will be Risograph printed and ship on September 12.

Here are some sample spreads:

 

And more examples of some of the sleeves featured:

including this Hungarian release of Pocket Calculator from 1981

Most of the artwork for Kraftwerk’s sleeves was produced by German painter Emil Schult – see his site here
