THE GATHERING STORM: A QUARTET IN SEVERAL PARTS. {Half-page title: The Gathering Storm: The Album Art of Storm Thorgerson with Hipgnosis and Stormstudios.} Storm Thorgerson. Insight Editions, San Rafael, 2015. 272 pp. with 209 ills. (192 col.). 32 x 25 cm. ISBN 9781608876785 In English.
Publisher's description: Throughout his esteemed career, Storm Thorgerson revolutionized the art of the album cover. For nearly five decades, Thorgerson designed covers for some of the most famous rock-and-roll bands in the world, including Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, the Scorpions, Black Sabbath, Genesis, the Cranberries, Styx, and many more. His designs transitioned the art form into a new era, one that strayed from simple photos of the artist and focused instead on images that reflected the music. Using an extraordinary coupling of the exotic, the extravagant, and the improvised, Thorgerson conveyed a sense of magic and wonder in each of his distinctive album covers. The Gathering Storm: A Quartet in Several Parts exhibits over 100 of Thorgerson's many conceptual masterpieces -- including his acclaimed covers for Pink Floyd's The Dark Side of the Moon and Wish You Were Here, Led Zepplin's Houses of the Holy and In Through the Out Door, and his more recent work for Muse's Absolution. Complete with Thorgenson's personal commentary, this unique book is an un-replicable gem that will thrill fans of art, photography, and music alike.
