A cooperation between two great artists. A typical Peter Nicholls illustration, refined by IQ's new graphical genius Tony Lythgoe. A very nice job by both of them.
The best part of the whole package is The Lost Attic logo type. I actually think it's the first time I have seen that someone has done a logo of the title of a record, and the design of it is outstanding.
It would have been great if the IQ-logo had been in the same colour as the title. This red beveled style looks a bit too modern and overworked for this kind of classic album. The booklet contains no less than 20 pages with lyrics and a lot of interesting information about the songs.
In my opinion, Lythgoe has used a little too many colours for these pages. But on the whole, once again, IQ give us a very pleasant album for your eyes as well as for your ears.
