This wildly entertaining doco profiles Hipgnosis, the designers behind the most iconic album covers in rock history for acts like Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin and many more.

Hipgnosis was responsible for the prism on Pink Floyd’s The Dark Side of the Moon along with most of that band’s other covers; the all-star jailbreak on McCartney and Wings’ Band on the Run; the naked kids climbing a mystical stone landscape for Led Zeppelin’s Houses of the Holy; Peter Gabriel’s first three solo albums, each a little weirder than the last; and lots more… Squaring the Circle is a treat for anyone with a taste for rock, for rock imagery and for the glories that can be found in that piece of cardboard wrapped around a record.” – Steve Pond, The Wrap
