Hipgnosis is The Beatles of album cover art — nobody has ever done it better than the British design firm founded by Storm Thorgerson and Aubrey Powell. Their first cover was Pink Floyd’s 1968 album A Saucerful of Secrets and their last was Led Zeppelin’s Coda, released in 1982. There’s quite a bit of poetry in that. In their fifteen years together the firm produced many of the most iconic covers in music history.
Below is a gallery of all 190 Hipgnosis covers. For more information check out the book For the Love of Vinyl: The Album Art of Hipgnosis.
