The Jethro Tull Christmas Album

Christmas albums usually do not stand out well in terms of cover art, but here we have an exception to the rule. The 2003 seasonal offering by prog rock band Jethro Tull comes with a beautiful stylish cover, resembling old Dutch paintings, and depicting lead singer/flautist Ian Anderson in the bottom left corner. Excellent choice of font as well. I could not retrieve information on the design, word has it that it was an "inside job".
