About this title

Synopsis:

First published in 1984, Magnetic Storm followed in the groundbreaking footsteps of the million-selling Views (1975). Once again employing a large format and lavish production to showcase the unique art and design of Roger Dean, this iconic book was a retrospective of the astonishing breadth of work accomplished since the publication of its predecessor. Through Views and Magnetic Storm, Roger Dean established a devoted readership, while Dragon's Dream (2008) demonstrates how his visionary work has continued to illuminate an age of digital animation, computer games, and virtual worlds.

Embracing designs for record sleeves, rock stages, movie projects, architecture, games consoles, landscapes, and books, Magnetic Storm features everything from innovative aircraft livery to the Yes logo. This new edition streamlines the original format and retains the combination of concept sketches and the finished works. Featuring revised design and typography, a new foreword, and a newly finished painting that Roger supplied especially for the front cover of this edition, Magnetic Storm showcases and celebrates the art that defined an era.

About the Author:

Roger Dean is internationally acclaimed as an artist and designer whose evocative and visionary images created a new genre. Made popular through the medium of album covers and posters, his work has sold in excess of 100 million copies. Roger became widely known in the 1970s for his album cover designs for Yes—including the classic logo now in the Victoria & Albert Museum in London—and a poll of Rolling Stone readers selected five of his designs in the top twenty best album covers of all time.
