Storm Thorgerson discusses Pink Floyd's Dark Side Of The
Moon Print:

Dark Side Of The Moon is Pink Floyds commercial-meets-
conceptual equinox. A masterpiece production by both Pink
Floyd and Storm Thorgerson, with well over thirty five
million copies sold to date. Of minor significance was the
complete appropriateness of the Dark Side Of The Moon
artwork to the record. Says Storm Thorgerson, the Dark Side
Of The Moon design is simply a mechanical tint lay, which
means we drew outline shapes, black on white, and indicated
what colours were to appear when printed. The prisms were
airbrushed black on white and reversed by the printer.

The Dark Side Of The Moon idea itself was cunningly cobbled
by from a standard physics textbook, which illustrated light
passing through a prism. Of significance was the simple,
elegant layout against black - standard textbook
illustrations did not do this. And then to connect this idea
to Pink Floyd's live show, which was famous for its
lighting, and subsequently to connect this to ambition and
madness, themes Roger was exploring in the lyrics hence the
prism, the triangle and the pyramids. It all connects,
somehow, somewhere.. Says David Gilmour, We knew that the
package the record and the cover and everything together
was going to be far, far stronger than anything we had done
before.

And so The Dark Side Of The Moon came to be. Dark Side Of
The Moon, the No.1 Billboard album in March of 1973, this
recording went on to achieve a record 741 weeks or 14 whole
years on the Top 200 Albums chart, The longest chart album
ever, beating its nearest rival by five years! An audio
visual feast created by the masters, Pink Floyd and Storm
Thorgerson
