Storm Thorgerson: Pink Floyd Artist Dies after a battle with cancer, I really liked his album covers. :(

I think his Dark Side of the Moon cover was the first ever that didn't have a title or the band's name on it.

RIP He did some great work.

Ref Tony: It wasn't as Led Zeppelin IV was two years earlier in 1971 and that has no indication of the band or title or indeed any writing anywhere on the cover
One of those? Oh I'm sure I have one somewhere..
