One of the few (perhaps the only) good things about prog rock in the early 70s were the album covers of Roger Dean. They graced LPs by Yes, famously, but also albums by Atomic Rooster, Magna Carta, Gentle Giant, Osibisa, Pete Dello and Friends and Uriah Heep among others. I mention Roger's exotic illustrations because I've just sold a 1970s book of his work (views) on Ebay. This prompted me to take a closer look at his work, which is wonderfully fantastical. Here are a few of his album covers. http://www.rogerdean.com/
