Now I'm like OBSESSED with finding out more about Hipgnosis. All the books I can find seem to be out of print. I can't even find out why the book is called "walk away rene". I found one of the founder's (Storm Thorgerson) websites. Here's a little thing he wrote about a Led Zeppelin cover that used to fascinate me. Now that I tested the link (like a real scientist) I see that the website is set up so you can't go directly. If you really care, go to "anecdotes", then "golden oldies" and then click on the Led Zep "presence" cover. And if you do all that you have wayyy too much time on your hands. Can there be any designers more responsible for the art look of the 80's than these guys? It's crazy.
