#photorehabcovermakeover Week 16 Dark Side of the Moon

A makeover for The Dark Side of the Moon by Pink Floyd? Sacrilege, I thought. How could I ignore such an iconic image and do my thing for a breathtaking album that epitomizes my teenage years? I have a vivid memory of when I first heard it. I was with a boy in his bedroom and we were about fifteen. We did a little fumbling but nothing to worry the parents or the Mrs Whitehouse brigade. And we listened to the album. Loudly. Very. Bliss was it in that afternoon to be alive.

Desley and Lucile gave us a choice: Dark Side or Division Bell, another Pink Floyd album(or both). Since nothing came to mind for the latter, I went back to Dark Side and decided to play with same colours. The font is Telugu Sangam MN Regular. I prefer the original, to be honest. The album was released in 1973 and was designed by Storm Thorgerson and drawn by George Hardie.
