Iconic Pink Floyd and Led Zeppelin artworks exhibit in San Francisco

Storm Thorgerson, the album cover artist for rock legends Pink Floyd and Led Zeppelin, will present 20 never-before-seen pieces of art at San Francisco's Art Exchange, next month.

The show will feature Thorgerson's classic collection of surreal images and album covers, among them his unforgettable artwork for Pink Floyd's 1994 album, The Division Bell.

For the album's artwork, the artist erected two metal heads devised by Keith Breeden, each the height of a double-decker bus, in a field near Ely, UK.

As can be seen in the photograph, the haunting monoliths give the illusion that they are talking to one another while also forming a 'third face'.

Today, both sculptures can be found in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland, Ohio, US.

Following an invite-only opening reception night, Thorgerson's artworks will be available to view as part of the Lovers of Covers expo at the Art Exchange from August 14 to mid-September.

Meanwhile, collectors on the lookout for Pink Floyd and Led Zeppelin memorabilia can find two singular autographs on the market - each of which are great long-term investments.

The first is a signature by Pink Floyd founding member Roger Waters, lyricist, bassist and vocalist in the group until 1985, priced just £150.

The second piece is a page bearing each of the four signatures of Led Zeppelin - including deceased drummer, John Bonham - aka "the biggest band of the '70s."

Follow the links to find out how you can own these coveted pieces of rock history, whose values are sure to appreciate in years to come.
