I have posted the above monochrome photographic print because I heard of the recent sad passing of Storm Thorgerson. Some of you will know straight away who I am talking about. His album cover designs were pieces of art in their own right, in my own opinion he stands alongside the likes of Roger Dean and Dennis Riggs.
Back in the 1970s and perhaps later decades I know that I used to buy LPs based not just on their musical content but also that of the artwork on the cover and inner sleeve design. I have a lovely book of his designs which is entitled: Mind over Matter - The Images of Pink Floyd.
Back in the 1960s and 70s there was no CAD available, so designers like Storm relied upon pure artwork and photography to produce album covers for not just Pink Floyd but for 10cc and Peter Gabriel. Sadly another of my teenage heroes passes away.
