20,000 vinyl LPs 156: Hawkwind ~ Warrior on the Edge of Time

Hawkwind ~ Warrior on the Edge of Time (1975) front cover

This entry has nothing to do with the musicians nor the music in the album. It is all about the cover. It is a Limited edition sleeve that opens into the shape of a shield. Includes inner sleeve with credits and tracklisting.          

It was designed by Pierre Tubbs under the pseudonym, Comte Pierre D'Auvergne. He is a British songwriter, record producer and a brilliant album sleeve designer, as witness this cover.       

The cover is 24" by 24" folded in half then folded in half again with the record nestled in the interior. As far as I know, it is totally unique in the history of album cover design.
