5.0 étoiles sur 5THIS BOOK IS AMAZING!3 décembre 2008
Par D. Kupferschmidt - Publié sur Amazon.com
Everyone I've shown this book to has flipped over it. Ever page has either an amazing image that will make you drool or a curious anecdote that will leave you wanting to know so much more. One of the more interesting parts is discovering the processes behind these iconic covers, made on a budget with pre-digital techniques. In a time of recession woes it's good to remember that brilliance doesn't require deep pockets.
This book is incredible. 5 shining stars.

5.0 étoiles sur 5Awesome, Timeless Book - Great Gift Too8 décembre 2008
Par A. Cowan - Publié sur Amazon.com
I really had no idea to expect when I picked this up, as I really didn't know the history or purpose behind it - and I was utterly impressed by the amount of music history and art included into one photo book. The images are amazing and crazy - especially for the years in which most of the stuff was done. This is a definite gift idea for both the art/photo lover AND the music lover from any of the bands that Hipgnosis created art for, like Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, The Alan Parsons Project, to name a few. I bought it for my Dad, but I kinda wanted to keep it for myself. Sigh.

This book is amazing! If you are addicted to design, this book will provide the fix. Seeing how all this iconic art was created, before digital media, really made my head spin. In the cover of "Houses Of The Holy" for instance, the technicolor rocks and children were all tinted by hand! Today it would only be a few clicks away. Take a ride down Psychedelic Blvd and read how your favorite album art was born! As a young designer or art student this book is a must have.

5.0 étoiles sur 5Flat on My Back17 janvier 2009
Par Dan Goldman - Publié sur Amazon.com
From my preteen years to now, the unparalleled design work of Storm Thorgerson and Hipgnosis were always entrancing and mystifying enough to leave me laying on the floor, as lost decoding the LP cover artwork (later CD booklets) as I was in the music contained within. There are so many iconic classics, long have I unknowingly wished for a book collecting their works (and containing many more obscure ones I'd not yet seen).
Now that this book is here, I remain flat on my back, lost in the artwork all over again.

If you are a fan of this dead art form then you would appreciate this book and the stories which accompany the art work. Very high quality photos and print from the creators at Hipgnosis.
