  "I wanted to design a non-cover, something that was not like other covers, particularly not like other rock or psychedelic covers something that one would simply not expect. Not shocking, not mind altering, just unexpected. The cow was, in fact, more eye-catching than I had ever dared imagine; it was so different because it was so normal: so ordinary it stood out a mile....Atom Heart Mother was the big breakthrough in the UK despite the fact that the record company hated the cover. Still, nobody knows the nature of the link between sales and design, if one exists at all." - Storm Thorgerson
