For The Love Of Vinyl - Storm Thorgerson book coverJust published is "For the Love of Vinyl: The Album Art of Hipgnosis", 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 book documents 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.
