I was going to write about this, especially after the success of this, but William Drenttel has beaten me to it.
And it's a lot more eloquent that anything I would have written. And there are no swear words. Well worth a look.

I was just about to ask that too. No one's asking me but for what it's worth I agree "Together" stinks but feel "Wallpaper" works; perhaps because Fletcher "did it for real".

I like the Fletcher cover.
I suppose the fact that Fletcher's work is a real collage and not some vector half breed makes all the difference.
It has craft and elegance, not unlike Chermayeff's cover for The Art of Assemblage as mentioned in William's post.
As Richard correctly points out - doing it for real.

Sigh.... The homepage is a disaster too http://europa.eu/
...any more members anyone?
Clearly the European Political elite have no taste. The home of Classical music, Ballet, Opera, Punk, Literature and World Wars has absolutely no fucking taste.
Eurotrash doesn't feel so ironic at the momemt.
