Today we are very pleased to show an inside look at our very special June 2013 issue, Beastie Boys: A Visual History + Tribute to MCA. For the special issue, we have interviewed every album cover artist, from Polly Wog Stewto Hot Sauce Committee Part Two, inner-sleeve artists, photographers, and even feature some of the outtakes that went into every album cover.

The issue was curated and compiled by our contributing editor-at-large, Joey Garfield.
