In graphic designer Vaughan Oliver’s own words:
“The design of the Super Deluxe was inspired by the original photograph of the hand with red die that David sent for use on the front cover. Red, black and silvery grey in colour it also has a low culture feel about it which I developed in a tactile way with special materials. I was aiming for a sexy, kitsch quality with the black suede slipcase and red foil-blocked type. The book that slides out enhances this concept with a red leatherette finish and silver clothed spine whilst adding an “art book” touch with the “tipped in” image of the red die set into a debossed square centred on the book cover. The overall effect exhudes sex, sleaze and “roulette wheel” ambience. Central to the content is a lavish 12″ booklet which allows David’s “forensic” photographs to dominate over a very simple, reserved approach to the lyrics layout”.
