Pink Floyd, A Momentary Lapse of Reason
Something about this cover impresses me.
It’s probably the great effort the designers put in to make it happen. Instead of relying on studio tricks and effects to get good cover art, they took 700 beds to a beach in Devon in England, setting the stage for an amazing picture.
Now that’s dedication.
I have not been able to discover, however, whether the hang glider above the scene--probably a reference to the "Learning To Fly" single on the album--was actually live in the shot. I hope so; it somehow seems a much better cover if it's real.
