Storm’s Album Art

The BBC has a fantastic portion on their website devoted to Pictures, which can be seen here. More times than not, however, they post audio slideshows which are not worth sitting through. Fortunately, ever now and again you will find something truly great in their otherwise dreary ‘Audio Slideshows’ page. A few days ago I found just that.

The BBC did a short 4 minute piece on Storm Thorgerson. Storm is a graphic design artists responsible for many many classic rock album covers. His most well know covers are Pink Floyd’s classic Dark Side of the Moon album, and the band’s Wish You Were Here album. Check out the BBC piece here to see some more of his work, and hear some of his commentary on how the covers photos were taken.
