  1. Very pretty, but also strikes me as rather derivative of classic 4AD cover designs.

  2. Hm not sure I’d agree, but judging by your Mortal Coil reference you’re a 4AD fan!

  3. Jinsai’s right, I do love those 4AD covers, but I reckon this one is more of an unwitting tribute to Saville’s FAC designs, particularly “Closer”… Thanks for the feature, Colin.
