The Dark Side of the Moon 40th Anniversary is a limited edition silkscreen print with embossing, gold leaf, diamond dust and glazes by artist Storm Thorgerson.
From an edition of 160, the piece was published in 2013.
Dark Side 40th was in the final stages of production when Storm Thorgerson died.
The Print was proofed under Thorgerson's executive control, and he had discussed with Brad Faine of Coriander Studio what glazes and finishes should be applied to the final edition to complete it. The print has been finished exactly as per his wishes, each copy printed with Storm's signature.
The counter-signing of the print by the directors of StormStudios, Dan Abbott, Peter Curzon and Rupert Truman, confirms its authentication.

About the artist
Storm Thorgeson was a graphic designer and music video director who was the incredible mind behind some of the most iconic album covers of the last sixty years. In a career spanning six decades of music, Thorgeson produced album artwork for the likes of Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath, Muse, Genesis, Audioslave, Peter Gabriel and many more.
Thorgeson is most famous for designing more than ten album covers for Pink Floyd, most notably The Dark Side of the Moon, arguably the most famous album cover of all time.
Citing the Surrealist paintings of René Magritte as a major influence on his photography and collage, Thorgeson created vaguely-threatening photographic tableaux, featuring paranoid landscapes and physically-unlikely phenomenon…all long before the days of photoshop!
Of his creations, Thorgeson said: ‘I like photography because it is a reality medium, unlike drawing which is unreal. I like to mess with reality... to bend reality. Some of my works beg the question, is it real or not?’
