The author signed book contains thoughtful insight and commentary from Storm on the development of now iconic album covers such as Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon and Led Zeppelin's Presence.Gasoline 'Memory is a devilish thing, a slippery thing, you think you got it down and then it eludes you, like trying to catch a fish with bare hands. This image of eyes on trees is an exterior installation - hundreds of photos of eyes attached temporarily to silver birch trees, but its derivation I am not too sure about. Being an image of romance (romantic obsession) and paranoia. Alternatively I dimly recall a lateral association with the phrase 'the walls have ears' (more paranoia) so the trees have eyes but why trees? I don't know, I remember that they had to be silver birches, not some other tree, which may have have been a simple visual preference. Either way Rupert and Sam made a sterling effort to adorn every tree in sight making, I think, an effective and eye catching (oh my) image.' Storm Thorgerson
