Storm Thorgerson at exhibition launch in LondonAs many of you know, recently published was The Raging Storm - The Album Graphics of StormStudios, the latest, absorbing book from legendary graphic designer, Storm Thorgerson, and his team. Associated with Pink Floyd since 1968, Storm, along with his colleagues Hipgnosis and more recently StormStudios, has provided most of the Floyd's album cover art along with other key imagery. Storm himself is a much respected personality within the world of Pink Floyd, his contribution a key part of their story.

The Raging Storm is a collection of many pieces that StormStudios have completed for various artists over the past four years - not just for bands such as Pink Floyd, but more recent artists too, all of whom have been inspired to use StormStudios thanks to their painstaking approach to the work, creating often big and bold, unforgettable images, with a sense of humour or a cryptic note infusing each image.

The work is now to be celebrated in an exhibition that runs between July 12th-29th, 2012, at the [email protected] at the iconic Oxo Tower Wharf - a landmark along the River Thames for many years. The exhibition is free, and open 11am-6pm daily. To whet your whistle prior to arriving at the gallery (or indeed if you are unable to attend), check out our extensive, exclusive interview with Storm.

As a side note, the first week of the exhibition coincides with the photographic retrospective of the movie of Pink Floyd The Wall, so if you are considering a trip to London, mid July would be an ideal time - seeing two exhibitions whilst you are there.
