Squaring the Circle

The story of the creative geniuses behind Hipgnosis, the design studio that turned LP album covers into an artform in late 60’s/ early 70’s London. Storm Thorgerson and Aubrey Powell created some of the most famous album covers of the era for bands including Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, Paul McCartney, and 10cc. Interviews with McCartney, Roger Waters, David Gilmour, Jimmy Page, Robert Plant, and Noel Gallagher reflect on Hipgnosis album designs as “the poor man’s art collection”.
