Pencil-nec…

Finally dug this out of storage (almost forgot I had it... definitely spaced out WHERE....). I figured it would show up again when pigs fly.... and it did.

Design by Roger Waters, executed by Hipgnosis. A true classic record store display!

    Glad to see I hit your memory-bone square, Hems. As I said, I was hazy on where I'd stuck it ~ probably for the same reasons .....

    From what I understand, Storm designed the actual album cover for 'Animals' (which I never owned), but the base concept came from Roger and was fleshed out by Hipgnosis. Don't really understand the difference...I was not knee-deep into this minituae back in the day ~ just got that from a wiki search. Always appreciated the art, though.

    Fascinating insight, Hems! So, in your opinion, which came first? The Storm or the Hipgnosis? I understand that the creative process from your discription was organic and collaborative, but is Wiki inaccurate attributing it as I described above? Seems they have it pretty well documented on its face to me.

    Oh... and I'll give you five bucks for that concept design scribbling....

    What an incredibly gracious offer, Hems!!! But honestly my tongue was in my cheek when I made that $5 offer, not for a second imagining you would consider giving it up.

    (I do that a lot, offer $5 for amazing stuff ~ like vintage cars ... but it's also amazing some of the things I've gotten for that price ~ including a folk art lamp at an estate sale they had tagged for $500 that I took to the Antiques Roadshow. The appraiser LOVED it and gave it an estimated value of $1500-1800 at a high-end show for that genre!)

    Anyhoo... seems to me that little slip of paper you have should indeed be preserved and accompanied by your backstory regarding its provenance. Have you considered offering it to the R&R Hall of Fame in Cleveland or Paul Allen's Experience Music Project in Seattle? I know *I* would appreciate it if I came across it in a display while touring one of those venues! You really should consider that, IMO.
    And thanks again for even considering me as a recipient....

    The rock Hall of Fame is in Cleveland, Ohio, Steve. It is pretty big-time as those operations go with annual induction ceremonies that are televised. Here's a link:

    The Experience Music Project, on the other hand, is located in Seattle, Washington and is pretty much a vanity operation to benefit Paul Allen (of Microsoft/Bill Gates fame) and give him a place to store his incredible collection of vintage guitars & etc ~ and charge folks to gaze at 'em. It does have it's good points, though. Here's their link:
    http://www.empmuseum.org/

    I would encourage you to document what you have there. That ephemeral stuff is what disappears first and deserves to be preserved. It is quite simply the flesh on the bones of history. Gawd help us if Justin Bieber or some such ended up getting credit for such leaps of technology & invention....

    teve ~ if you are going to consider a donation, pay particular attention to the "Library and Archives" link on the Rock&Roll Hall of Fame link above. They have an impressive list of personal papers from all ends of the spectrum; artist, production, &etc. (You might mention it to Storm over a pint some day, too...)

    Hello again, Steve!
    Hope you can find a moment to post some pictures of that accumulation. It would be nice to see what it represents, as much as we have discussed it here. While for me, it is mostly pearls before swine (me being the piggie), it just might make someone here pop a wheelie in appreciation.
