The Hipgnosis Album Cover Gallery

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.

  1. Utterly fantastic work! I think however that Peter Saville pretty handily squeaks by them as the best, at least in my subjective opinion 🙂
