I'm not sure I can legitimately describe myself as a bossa nova fan (though like everything else, I'm always open-eared) but one thing I do like is a book on great record sleeves. And the terrific Soul Jazz Records are putting out a book compiled by Gilles Peterson and Stuart Baker of bossa nova sleeves. The first ever book on the subject apparently.
You can order it here for £17.50 (normally £25) and if you get in quick you can get a signed copy. One of the many cool sleeves is below, and I expect it to be along the lines of the Jazz Covers book I wrote about a while back. Sure, it's all classic coffee table fare, but that's no bad thing when it looks this good.
