I created the original of what has become this cover last year. It was a couple of sentences that I converted to a symbol font as a design exercise. I'm not sure why I abandoned the drawing, but when I opened it yesterday I felt it was of the same character as the other two Saucerbottom covers, so I took it in that direction.
The artist name and album title were composed using only the symbols originally included -- with some alterations to accomodate letter forms like the "S," "B," and "M." The photograph was taken by a friend of mine in Duluth, Minnesota around 2000.
