LED ZEPPELIN Album Artist Richard Drew Passes

The album cover artist who designed the intricate sleeve for LED ZEPPELIN’s 1970 album, Led Zeppelin III, has died.

Classic Rock reports that Richard Drew, whose professional moniker
was Zacron, died in January from bowel cancer, but only recently did his
estranged family learn of his passing.

Zacron was born in Sutton, Surrey in 1943, and studied with ERIC
and members of THE YARDBIRDS, including Jimmy Page, at Kingston
College of Art between 1957-60. Page and Zacron reconnected in 1969, and
Zacron was commissioned to design the sleeve for III. The end result,
completed in four months, featured a rotating cardboard disc that, when
turned, revealed various images through holes in the sleeve.

In 2007, Zacron designed the magazine cover for a special edition of Classic Rock dedicated to the Led Zeppelin reunion.
