The image on the front cover is of Heazlewood.
Description The front cover is a B/W self portrait of Heazelwood with a 35 mm Nikkon F camera taken in front of a mirror and developed/printed by Heazelwood. Terry Perkins then scanned the image into a computer and then added in the san serif Heazlewood lettering at the bottom of the cover, and the credits on the back, using Adobe Photoshop.The back cover is another B/W 35mm photo by Heazelwood of Otago Peninsula. It shows a closeup in poor contrast of an outline of a thistle and gorse bush with a grey foreboding sky and cloud overhead. Because the record was not released commercially in NZ only about 50 copies ever turned up in NZ. The Nikkon F camera in the front cover was first used on the Apollo moon missions and was extensively used by photojournalists during the war in Vietnam. [DM 01.2001]
