Omoti albuma – umjetnost u sjenci muzike


Kolekcionari i ljubitelji ploča su, osim u muzici, uživali i u dizajnu omota ploča.

To je bio nezaobilazni ritual, razgledanje omota dok se ploča vrtila na gramofonu. Omot albuma grupe Pink FLoyd – Dark Side Of the Moon, koji se smatra jednim od najboljih svih vremena, i dan danas pleni svojom jednostavnošću i originalnošću i prepoznatljiv je čak i onim malobrojnim ljubiteljima muzike (ako ih uopšte ima) koji taj album nikad nisu čuli.

Hipgnosis je bila engleska dizajnerska grupa koja je od omota napravila umjetnost. Osnovali su je Storm Thorgerson i Aubrey Powell u Londonu 1968. godine. Bili su najveća i najbolja dizajnerska grupa koja je radila omote za najveće i najbolje pjevače i grupe ’60. I ’70. kao što su: Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, Electric Light Orchestra, Genesis, 10cc, Yes, Peter Gabriel, The Gods, Black Sabbath, Rainbow, Paul McCartney, Syd Barrett, Scorpions, Styx, i druge. Poslednji omot su kreirali 1982. godine grupi Led Zeppelin za album Coda. Storm Thorgerson i Aubrey Powell su 2008. godine objavili knjigu »For the Love of Vinyl: The Album Art of Hipgnosis«.
