What was perhaps his best-known image was something of an anomaly. For the 1973 Pink Floyd album, “The Dark Side of the Moon,” prompted by a request from a band member for something “graphic, cool and deliberate,” he created the suggestion of a triangular prism against a black background, an image of brilliant light refraction that became a symbolic reference to the band. RIP Storm Thorgerson, Album Designer for Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, et al. Thorgerson beautifully matched the emotion of music to his LP designs.  He made album art, art; as amazing as the music itself, if not more.
