Led Zeppelin – Houses of the Holy (1973)

The cover art for Houses of the Holy was inspired by the ending of Arthur C. Clarke’s novel Childhood’s End. (The ending involves several hundred million naked children, only slightly and physically resembling the human race in basic forms.) It is a collage of several photographs which were taken at the Giant’s Causeway, Northern Ireland, by Aubrey Powell of Hipgnosis.
