Product Description

The comprehensive collection of the late Storm Thorgerson’s iconic designs for Pink Floyd

A gorgeous centerpiece to any Pink Floyd fan’s collection, Mind Over Matter is a veritable gallery of the band’s artwork and the backstory of its creation by the late graphic designer Storm Thorgerson, who was instrumental in creating the mystique that shrouds Pink Floyd and its music. The creative genius behind Pink Floyd’s iconic Dark Side of the Moon album cover revisits the work he created for each album and tells the story behind the concept, annotating this collection of legendary music visuals with his personal memoirs of his time spent with the band.

This complete package of music artwork showcases the images of Pink Floyd’s album sleeves and the iconic designs from tour programs, poster, t-shirts, and booklet pages in beautiful color reproductions alongside Thorgerson’s commentary. His insights in into the creation of some of the most evocative and recognizable images in music history, including the flying pig and the infamous Dark Side of the Moon prism, will instruct and surprise even the most devoted Pink Floyd fan.

With 275 color and 38 b&w images
