A POP-UP exhibition in Henley will feature prints by speakers at this year’s literary festival, which began this week.

On Sunday from 5pm two of the album cover genre’s most celebrated artists will be appearing at the town hall for a sold-out talk.

Aubrey (Po) Powell, co-founder along with Storm Thorgerson of the photodesign studio Hipgnosis, photographed designs for artists including Pink Floyd and Led Zeppelin.

He will be discussing Hipgnosis Portraits with Richard Evans, graphic designer and art director for The Who, who worked with Po and Storm at Hipgnosis and is the author of The Art of the Album Cover celebrating seven decades of sleeve design from jazz through psychedelia to Britpop and beyond.

After the event, publishers the Hypergallery, also in Market Place, will host a book signing and exhibition of the authors’ design work in their print room, just across from the town hall where you’ll be able to meet the authors, have a drink or two and view the exhibition.
