Interestingly, the man who made the Psygnosis logo, Roger Dean, had a career in album art too. (I didn't know that, Wikipedia told me).

::Edit:: Checked out some of his covers. They're pretty neat too.

There were only like two dozen people in the UK doing pretty much all of their contributions to world culture from like 1968 to like 1985.

Huh. Kind of like what the English Romantics did for literature in the 19th century. I often wondered if those writers were really that good, or just what everyone knew and was comfortable with, like pop music, but for books.

I might look into some of these album guys.

You were tested on Last of the Mohicans not because it was any good, but because like five percent of the ninety percent that were literate of the thirty percent that were northerners of the seventy percent who were white of the eight million people in the United States read it 200 years ago. So like 80,000 people.
