Artful albums #9: Roger Dean – Tales from Topographic Oceans (1973)

Tales-Yes-Cover

Roger Dean (b.1944), a graduate of the Royal College of Art, together with Storm Thorgerson (more about him later) is credited with the transformation of the album cover from perfunctory packaging to the status of art form in its own right. This example is the gatefold cover for the 1973 Yes album ‘Tales from Topographic Oceans’. But you really should check out his website and have a look at the other stuff he’s done over the years – http://www.rogerdean.com
