Storm Thorgerson is perhaps known best as the designer of Pink Floyd album covers. However, this fabulous book shows that Storm, together with Aubrey Powell, was at the center 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. Complete with preface and introduction, this lavish edition has nearly 200 pages of full-color, indexed images. Each image has an enlightening commentary from Storm on the creative process and sometimes practical impediments behind the finished article.
