Storm Thorgerson designed the iconic cover of Pink Floyd's 1973 release "Dark Side of the Moon"

Storm Thorgerson, arguably best known as the designer of Pink Floyd’s album cover for Dark Side of the Moon, died Thursday, April 18, 2013, after a battle with cancer. He was both a close friend to the band and integral to their artistic vision. The Library and Archives has two compendiums of his career, which lasted from the 1960s well into 2012. The first, Mind Over Matter : the Images of Pink Floyd, concentrates on his breakthrough work with the influential rock band and 1996 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees. The second is a lavish, limited edition set by Genesis Publications called Taken by Storm : the Album Art of Storm Thorgerson (pictured below), which features a 203-page book edited by Thorgerson himself, as well as full-color prints, a bonus retrospective book on SunStorm Studios and a 3-D Viewmaster of cover images.
