British graphic designer Storm Thorgerson, whose surreal and stylized approach to album cover design made for some of rock music's most iconic images, passed away yesterday at age 69. With a portfolio including bands like Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, Genesis, Muse and the Mars Volta, we think pictures say more than words, so let some of these Thorgerson-designed covers do the talking:

Led Zeppelin, Houses of the Holy (1973)


Pink Floyd, The Dark Side of the Moon (1973)


Pink Floyd, Wish You Were Here (1975)


Peter Gabriel, Peter Gabriel (1977)


Pink Floyd, Animals (1977)


Genesis, ...And Then There Were Three... (1978)


Pink Floyd, A Momentary Lapse of Reason (1987)


Pink Floyd, Delicate Sound of Thunder (1988)


Catherine Wheel, Chrome (1993)


Rick Wright, Broken China (1996)


The Cranberries, Wake Up and Smell the Coffee (2001)


The Mars Volta, De-Loused in the Comatorium (2003)


Muse, Black Holes and Revelations (2006)
