Founded in 1967 by Storm Thorgerson, Aubrey ‘Po’ Powell and Peter Christopherson, the design agency Hipgnosis gained legendary status in graphic design, transforming the look of album art forever and winning five Grammy nominations for package design.

This complete and definitive catalogue of Hipgnosis, Vinyl . Album . Cover . Art: The Complete Hipgnosis Catalogue by Aubrey Powell and Peter Gabriel, does justice to the work of the most important design collective in music history and define the albums of many of the biggest names in the history of popular music: 10cc, AC/DC, Black Sabbath, Peter Gabriel, The Police, Genesis, Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, Paul McCartney, Robert Plant, Syd Barrett, Throbbing Gristle, T. Rex, Wings, Yes and XTC, to name but a few.

Arranged chronologically, this Hardback edition features stunning reproductions of every single Hipgnosis cover―more than 300 in total―for the first time, along with pertinent insights from the rock ’n’ roll legends whose albums are featured and behind-the-scenes photography. The text, written by Powell, and with contributions by Peter Gabriel, Robert Plant, and Nick Mason, brims with information that illuminates the album art and the compelling stories behind each cover’s creation.

500+ color illustrations.
