More about the Physical Graffiti Album Cover:
Mike Doud and Peter Corriston created the album cover for Led Zeppelin’s “Physical Graffiti”, released in 1975 depicting a building located at 96-98 St. Mark’s Place, NYC. The cover has die-cut windows that reveal a variety of eclectic images including historic and notorious individuals suggesting the exotic lives and happenings of the New Yorkers inside the building. It is a "double-album", and the images are interchangeable by switching the album sleeves around. Now even the building is somewhat notorious with a clothing store called “Physical Graffiti” in the basement and Led Zep fans making pilgrimages to the site and posting photos of it online. In the ‘80s the building was featured in the Rolling Stones’ video “Waiting for a Friend”. Peter Corriston also designed the album covers for the Rolling Stones' "Some Girls", "Emotional Rescue", and won a Grammy for "Tatoo You".
