Hipgnosis Portraits is a glossy coffee table tome from the creative agency, published by Thames & Hudson.

The high-profile firm is behind some pretty famous artwork, including the iconic sleeve for Pink Floyd's 'The Dark Side of the Moon.' This book serves as an opportunity for Hipgnosis to showcase some of its most prominent commissions alongside its lesser-known works.

The first half of the book, penned by co-founder Aubrey "Po" Powell, is dedicated to telling the story of the art, and how each work came to fruition. The rest is an exhaustive look at the designs of the legendary creative studio. The images are just as exciting and eclectic in the 21st century as they were back in the 1970s.
