Cover design

The original vinyl edition was packaged in a gatefold sleeve with a novelty cover. The cover and interior gatefold art consisted of a surreal collection of seemingly random images on a white background, many of them connected with flight or aviation (as in "Zeppelin"). Behind the front cover was a rotatable paper disc covered with more images, including photos of the band members, which showed through holes in the cover. Moving an image into place behind one hole would usually bring one or two others into place behind other holes. This could not be replicated on a conventional cassette or CD cover, but there have been Japanese and British pressings packaged in miniature versions of the original sleeve.
