A lavish hardback edition in full-colour, showcasing forty years worth of the very best album art from the world-famous Hipgnosis studio.Storm Thorgeson is perhaps known best as the designer of Pink Floyd album covers. However, this fabulous book shows that Storm, together with and Aubrey Powell, who as the co-founder of the Hipgnosis studio, were at the centre of the Seventies music world, translating the music of the best and biggest bands of the time into inspired and hypnotic visual images. So often, these stunning images seemed to encapsulate the very essence of the music and for that reason, became just as memorable as the music itself. Hipgnosis is not frozen in time however, associated with musical monoliths such as Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath, Genesis and The Nice. It is alive and kicking and Taken By Storm contains fruits from collaborations with musicians and bands throughout the 70s, 80s and 90s, through to the 21st century.Complete with preface and introduction, this lavish edition has nearly 200 pages of full-colour, indexed images. Each image has an enlightening commentary from Storm on the creative process and sometimes practical impediments behind the finished article. Book size 26cm x 33cm
