This collection of album cover art by Storm Thorgerson brings us nearly up to date (it was published in 2007). It is yet another gorgeous feast for the eyes, full of arresting images which reward closer inspection. Storm himself has written the text, which means you get lots of background information about the photographs, including the thought processes that led to the final result.
If all this seems familiar, then you probably already own his previous book, 'Eye of the Storm', which came out 8 years earlier. I have no hesitation in recommending 'Taken by Storm' to new readers - you will be enthralled by it. But if you already own 'Eye..', you should be aware of a couple of things. First of all, there IS a fair bit of overlap between the two - this book is billed as a 'retrospective', so inevitably there are some pictures which appear in both volumes. Secondly, Storm's writing feels more 'factual' this time round. I loved his rants in 'Eye of the Storm', and whilst some of that remains in 'Taken...', it is not nearly so prevalent as before (compare his notes about 'Earth Calling' by Mike Oldfield, for example).
If you can only afford one of them, I would go with 'Eye...'. But I suspect that, like me, you will want to come back later for this volume, anyway, just for the more recent work.
