"Hipgnosis was the biggest and best design firm for the biggest and best bands of the classic rock era. Formed by Storm Thorgerson and Aubrey Powell in 1968, Hipgnosis was a graphic design studio specializing in creative photography and working mainly in the music business designing album covers for many rock 'n' roll bands including Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, Genesis, 10cc, Yes, Peter Gabriel, Black Sabbath, Paul McCartney, Syd Barrett and Styx, among others. For a dozen years Hipgnosis created timeless rock iconography. For the Love of Vinyl is the first book to document their output in detail, focusing on over 60 package designs - from cover to label - written about in entertaining detail by the men who created them. Also included are short essays by musicians (such as Pink Floyd's Nick Mason), artists (Peter Blake) and fellow designers (Paula Scher) on their favorite covers, as well as unseen photographs and ephemera. Complementing it all is a lengthy critical and historical text examining Hipgnosis and its legacy. For the Love of Vinyl will be THE rock book of 2008."

To be honest :

I listen to my records from time to time but not very often. I still have all of them and more important I have a 19 year old daughter who is very enthousiastic and happy with the fact that her father has a turntable and a few hundred records. If you can find the time check her column "Digital Medium Phobia" that she wrote under her pseudonym Yia Yia.

Ordered it just a minute ago !
I always loved the Hipgnosis covers so much.

A shame, that the CDs are so small to really show the cover art in an adequate way. But on the other hand, I would have serious problems storing all the music I own as vinyl.

Is it worth having if you already have "Walk Away Rene"?

I can't answer the question as so far I can only judge them by the cover therefore I would like to start with the new one Smile
