The next day cover story

The recent release of the new David Bowie album The next day was quite an event - and the cover is quite special as well. Not special in a good way though, and I even considered running it under the Mixed Nuts category in my Potpourri blog. But at least, there is some method behind the madness of taking the old iconic Heroes cover and putting the big white square with text over it. The linked article gives designer Jonathan Barnbrook a chance to explain his reasons. I am still not convinced, but I thought it was an interesting read.
