"I wanted to design a non-cover, something that was not like other covers, particularly not like other rock or psychedelic covers – something that one would simply not expect. Not shocking, not mind altering, just unexpected. The cow was, in fact, more eye-catching than I had ever dared imagine; it was so different because it was so normal: so ordinary it stood out a mile." - Storm Thorgerson
