For The Love Of Vinyl - Storm Thorgerson book coverNovember 2008 sees the publication of a new book focusing on the wonderful cover images created by Storm Thorgerson and his colleagues from the graphic design studio he founded with Aubrey Powell. The hardcover, 224 page "For the Love of Vinyl: The Album Art of Hipgnosis" is the first book to document their output in detail, focusing on over 60 package designs – from cover to label – written about in entertaining detail by the men who created them.

Also included are short essays by musicians (such as Pink Floyd's Nick Mason), artists (Peter Blake) and fellow designers (Paula Scher) on their favourite covers, as well as unseen photographs and ephemera. Complementing it all is a lengthy critical and historical text examining Hipgnosis and its legacy. Sounds pretty essential to us!
