A straight crop of the centre of the album cover, although no one had seen the full image at the time, see the Let The Night Roar entry for a full explanation. Also play ‘where’s Wally King Cannibal’ with the sleeve. I finally got the KC logo how I wanted it with this release too, lining up the diagonal lines on the ‘n’s with the blades to form a sharper look.

Looking for typefaces for the album I’d found a fantastic Brazillian custom font designer called Marcio Hirosse on the web who I’d bought several typefaces from for the project, namely one called DESTROYER which seemed to be apt for Dylan’s music. This was a  bit too much on its own so I combined it with another font to make it more readable.
