It’s a mark of the strength of vision in the graphic designer Storm Thorgerson’s work – both solo and with the design collective Hipgnosis – that the news of his passing should have created waves of sympathy from rock fans all over the world. The designers of album covers don’t usually get that kind of attention. In fact, there’s only really Peter Blake left – the man who made “Sgt Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band” – who could.

RIP, what a talent.
