Art direction and design for Peter Gabriel 'New Blood'

Art Direction & Design
Such was the demand after 'Scratch my Back' that Peter decided to squeeze in another record using the New Blood orchestra, this time recording rearrangements of his earlier material. It seemed sensible to continue the theme so once again i got together with micrographer Steve Gschmeissner, who shot the cover, an embryonic stem cell on the tip of a needle. The peripheral design consists of  DNA portrait and track by track graphic visualisation.

The Gatefold vinyl version contains a bonus 7" of  'Solsbury Hill', the cover of which is a detail of Andy Harper's extremely detailed 'Grass paintings' whilst on the vinyl itself are micrographs of local grass and plant seeds
