The identifiable piece of album imagery has been ingrained in pop culture was taken from the Cambridge Encyclopedia of Astronomy and is an expression of comparative path demonstration of frequency from a signal. Accompanying the various takes is a special 40th-anniversary typeface and layout that falls in line with PLEASURES signature graphic sensibility.
