Richard Drew, the man who created the cover art for Led Zeppelin’s “III” album, has died.
The reclusive artist, known professionally as Zacron, lost his battle with cancer in January, but his family members announced his passing only recently. He was 68.
Drew studied art with Eric Clapton and Jimmy Page at the U.K.’s Kingston College of Art and created a book with Page in the mid-1960s, according to Classic Rock magazine.
He created groundbreaking album art for Led Zeppelin when he inserted a picture-filled rotating disc under the cover image.
