Storm Thorgerson

Designer Storm Thorgerson died this week, the BBC reported.  If you weren't aware of his (brilliant) name before, you'll almost certainly know some of his many, many superb pieces of artwork for some of the greatest albums ever made. He has a particularly strong association with Pink Floyd, creating ambiguous, enigmatic images full of surreal influence. Here's a few of his very best.

Pink Floyd 'The Dark Side of the Moon', 1973
Muse, 'Blackholes and Revelations', 2006
Pink Floyd 'Wish You Were Here', 1975
Phish, 'Slip Stitch and Pass' 1997
