The Gathering Storm - The Album Art of Storm ThorgersonAn update for you on The Gathering Storm - The Album Art of Storm Thorgerson, which we first told you about in May, and which is being published in October 2013.

Storm wrote and compiled this book over the last year of his life and was still writing it at Christmas - he saw a finished copy a few days before he died. It spans his entire career in album cover design from the 1960s and his days with Hipgnosis, through the intervening decades and it finishes with images he made with StormStudios this year. Due to be released in October, it is a luscious hardback book, 256 pages thick and is available in three editions: Hardback, Collector's and Deluxe. Those of you with the previous book, A Raging Storm - also published by StormStudios and de Milo - will know how nicely done that was, and with the same printers in Italy being used for this, the same quality should shine through.

With artwork created for Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, Muse, Peter Gabriel, Wombats, 10cc, Audioslave, Black Sabbath, Biffy Clyro, Genesis, Rainbow, Steve Miller, Pendulum and The Mars Volta amongst others, a wide cross-section of people will no doubt thoroughly enjoy it. Our review, though, will be along closer to publication date.

In the meantime, pre-orders are now being taken for all three versions through the official TGS website for despatch upon publication. You've got the following options:

  • HARDBACK: The book alone. The first 50 copies will be signed by Peter, Dan and Rupert at the Studios. Pre-order HERE.
  • COLLECTOR'S: Limited to 125 copies this includes the signed book with a collector's box of 12 roughs (early draft sketches of cover designs) carefully printed onto A5 heavyweight card. Pre-order HERE.
  • DELUXE: This very limited edition of just 20 comes with both the signed book and the box set of roughs and a deluxe fine art print of the Liquid Dark Side image from the front cover of the book, replete with special glazes and embossing. Pre-order HERE.
