    Default Fair Warning Cover

    There used to be a link on the official web site (I think in the vault, which is currently unavailable...) that gave information about the artwork on the Fair Warning cover. I know only a portion of the image was used.

    Does anyone remember the name of the artist and the title?

    Alex was a fan of the artists work...one of the reasons they used it for the cover.....the artist hade mental health issues and spent some time in a mental hospital...."the Maze" depicts his desent into madness and his recovery.

    That's a very appropriate choice for this partic album IMO.

    At least it's not all black.

    I always thought the cover was taken directly from a section of the painting. I never realized they used images from all over the painting and made their own cover.
