Led Zeppelin scored another Number One album, this time at the expense of one

of Plant and Pages heroes, Elvis Presley. The two band members had met Presley

in Las Vegas in 1972. A year later, in its second week on the chart, May 12 1973,

Houses Of The Holy knocked Presleys Aloha From Hawaii Via Satellite from Number

One on the Billboard Album Chart. For the cover artists, Hipgnosis, this was indeed

a landmark year, as that Elvis album had previously stolen the Number One spot from

Pink Floyds The Dark Side Of The Moon.

Storm Thorgersons artwork for that Pink Floyd album is also available as a hand-

signed limited edition fine art print.

I became totally obsessed with Led Zeppelin, they were the first band I actually

listened to. I put on Houses Of The Holy and just sat there. Dave Grohl, Foo Fighters,

Q Magazine, March 2003.

Arguably one of the most intriguing pieces of sleeve artwork, Houses Of The Holy

was also one of the most difficult to assemble. With Led Zeppelins US tour breaking

box office records previously held by The Beatles, the music press had to concede

that they were now officially the biggest band in the world. In this respect, at least,

they no longer had anything to prove. Toby Manning, Q Magazine, 2003.

At the end of the book, (Arthur C. Clarkes Childhoods End), all of earths children

gather together to be taken off into space. I suggested we take a family to the Giants

Causeway in Northern Ireland and photograph them climbing the octagonal steps

there so it looked like they were climbing up to be taken away. I decided to take a black

and white photograph and hand tint it in the studio. I shot the children in various positions

then cut them out of the photos and made a collage. Aubrey Powell, Q Magazine,
