Thames & Hudson will next month publish Vinyl. Album. Cover. Art., a complete catalogue of the work of celebrated design agency Hipgnosis.
Hipgnosis (founded in 1967 by Aubrey Powell and Storm Thorgeson) were of course famous for their album covers, designing many iconic visuals for the likes of Pink Floyd, 10cc, Black Sabbath, Peter Gabriel, The Police, Genesis, Led Zeppelin, and Paul McCartney. All 373 of them are featured in this 320-page volume – apparently, the first time the catalogue has been published in its entirety.
This book is 24cm x 20cm and benefits from commentary and annotations by Aubrey ‘Po’ Powell and the late Storm Thorgerson, and also features notes by Peter Gabriel, Storm, Marcus Bradbury and Harry Pearce from Pentagram.
Vinyl. Album. Cover. Art: The Complete Hipgnosis Catalogue will be published on 13 April 2017. Seems good value at under £20 in the UK right now.
