Design duo Storm Thorgerson & Aubrey Powell - better known by their collective name Hipgnosis - are renowned in the music world for creating iconic cover art for rock and roll greats. From Pink Floyd to Paul McCartney, Hipgnosis have been behind some of the most well-know and well-loved album artworks, shaping the aesthetic of the music industry since the late 1960s.

‘Drastic Plastic (Be Bop Deluxe)’ is a reprint of the 1978 Be Bop Deluxe album of the same name. Its abstract image references the album title, with shiny plastic surfaces and splashes of acrylic paint in bright, bold, primary colours. It’s a powerful image, even removed from its musical context, with the skewed perspective, clever composition, and striking palette. A must have for the Be Bop Deluxe fan, the retro music collector, and anyone with a keen eye for the iconic.
