The Art Of Storm Thorgerson

Christine Natanael, crushermagazine.com, 2005

FOR AS FAR BACK as I can remember, I have been enraptured by album cover art. In the days before the small format of the CD, the 12" vinyl album ruled the world...and with it, the large format of its surfaces readily covered with images to alternately expand and warp your mind. (Then there was also the double album...but that's a whole other story...) Over and over I was inexplicably drawn to certain images, even before I knew who he was, I was mesmerized by the work that came from the mind and the team of one man: Storm Thorgerson.
