The base layer for this cover is a painting by the Belgian Surrealist René Magritte which he called The Human Condition 11. It has a painting within a painting and displays some very dodgy perspectives. Being currently obsessed with ‘The Power of She’ I have blotted Magritte’s foreground canvass with images of Patti Smith and The Queen Mum. Dylan is reluctantly drawn by this power and he strolls towards the images dressed in undertakers threads and wearing motor cycle gloves. On his way to, or just coming home from, a funeral perhaps.  The most interesting part of this picture, which is in the original, is the ball that divides inside from out. It looks as if it has just rolled into the picture from nowhere. Perhaps it is a lost ball and the whole wide world is searching for it!
