The cover of Pink Floyd’s Meddle is difficult for some to determine what exactly they are looking at, especially as cover art has gone from LP sleeves to CD inserts and finally to MP3 thumbnails on smartphone screens. It’s an extreme close-up of an ear superimposed by rippling waves of water. The idea for the cover came from the band, who were on tour in Japan and could only describe it to Storm Thorgerson by international phone call. (Storm’s original idea was a close-up photo of a baboon’s ass, which the band overruled.) Although he delivered something resembling what the Floyd had asked for, Storm was dissatisfied with the result. He said “I think Meddle is a much better album than its cover,” and his Hipgnosis partner Aubrey Powell agreed, “I don’t think we did them justice with that at all; it’s half-hearted.”

Girlfriend & Muse

Ginger Gilmour (née Virginia Hasenbein) [19.01.49]

Ever since I can remember I had a ‘dream’ which filled my days with wonder. That dream was a quest for Beauty. Even within the smallest rill of running water on a derelict building site, I found beauty. I dreamt of prince charming and living happily ever after. I dreamt of angels in heaven sending love. I dreamt of the birds singing and poppy fields as I stood upon a stonewall overlooking the Mystic River pretending to fly.

As I entered my adulthood my quest led me into the world of Pink Floyd, the rock band. Their music touched my very being and further inspired my dream - the quest for Beauty and that one can live it! As it happened I fell in love with David Gilmour, their lead-guitarist. Our first moments were a girl`s dream come true. During this time my life expanded to include the development of my own innate artistic qualities. He inspired me to touch the essence of life and then allow one’s own uniqueness to create the form or drawing that would capture its treasured quality.
