Between 1968 and 1983 the legendary British arthouse Hipgnosis, founded by Aubrey Powell and Storm Thorgerson (1944 – 2013), designed some of the most iconic album covers in music history. With their radical, often surreal image compositions and innovative photographic designs they influenced generations of photo designers and created images which transformed album cover design into art, admired and loved by millions of people all over the world: Atom Heart Mother, The Dark Side of the Moon, Wish You Were Here, Animals (Pink Floyd), Houses of the Holy (Led Zeppelin), Scratch (Peter Gabriel), How Dare You (10cc) oder Love Drive (Scorpions) – to name only a few of the approx. 350 covers which Hipgnosis designed.
