Taken By Storm

The Mars Volta Sleeve

I like this post, it gives me an excuse to post the above image. Storm Thorgerson is a legend. As one of the people behind the legendary design company Hipgnosis, Thorgerson has created many classic record sleeves including work for Led Zep, Pink Floyd, Peter Gabriel and The Mars Volta (above). This Saturday is the last weekend of his exhibition at the Oxo Gallery on the South Bank. The work on show is pretty special if you have even a passing interest in sleeve art and Storm himself was there when we went last weekend so aim for between 12 & 2 and take a gold pen and your copy of ‘Dark Side Of The Moon’. As my friend who is a graphic designer said when we were down there, ‘I just want to do one of these’.

The Oxo Gallery is at Oxo Tower Wharf, Bargehouse Street, South Bank, London SE1 9PH.
