Hipgnosis

Its been a while since I have done an art post. Storm Thorgerson was a founding member of the graphic design group Hipgnosis. It is famous for doing the graphic design for album covers of many classic rock groups.  Storm Thorgerson went to school with Roger Waters and Syd Barrett of Pink Floyd.  His style is very surrealistic.  Here is the album cover from Pink Floyd’s Wish you were Here.

 Although Hipgnosis most famous album cover is Dark Side of the Moon although I find that one graphically a bit of a yawner. Here is their album cover for Led Zeplin’s Houses of the Holy.

Here is a collection of Pink Floyd album covers from Atom Heart Mother to The Wall.
