Album cover album by Storm Thorgerson( Book )

44 editions published between 1977 and 1989 in 3 languages and held by 596 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Popular music both reflects and affects its period, and the best illustration of this is the album cover. Here, then, is a visual record of our changing times. New Wave, Punk, Heavy Metal and Reggae are just a few of the variations on the pop theme fighting for the record buyer's attention. These movements, along with Jazz, Classical, the Japanese influence and the growth of picture bags for singles are included with the fad, trends, musical styles and occasional flashes of pure inspiration covered in this book's more than 500 full colour sleeve reproductions and annotated with a concise commentary. -- from back cover

"Hipgnosis was the design firm of choice for the biggest and best bands of the classic rock era. Formed by Storm Thorgerson and Aubrey Powell in 1968, Hipgnosis was a graphic design studio specializing in creative photography and working mainly in the music business designing album covers for many rock 'n' roll bands including Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, Genesis, 10cc, Yes, Peter Gabriel, Black Sabbath, Paul McCartney, Syd Barrett and Styx, amongst others. For a dozen years Hipgnosis created timeless rock iconography. This is the first book to document their output in detail, focusing on over 60 package designs - from cover to label - written about in entertaining detail by the men who created them. Also included are short essays by musicians (such as Pink Floyd's Nick Mason), artists (Peter Blake) and fellow designers (Paula Scher) on their favorite covers, plus a contextual commentary by Adrian Shaughnessy, as well as unseen photographs and ephemera."--Jacket

"Throughout his esteemed career, Storm Thorgerson revolutionized the art of the album cover. For nearly five decades, Thorgerson designed covers for some of the most famous rock-and-roll bands in the world, including Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, the Scorpions, Black Sabbath, Genesis, the Cranberries, Styx, and many more. His designs transitioned the art form into a new era, one that strayed from simple photos of the artist and focused instead on images that reflected the music. Using an extraordinary coupling of the exotic, the extravagant, and the improvised, Thorgerson conveyed a sense of magic and wonder in each of his distinctive album covers." --
