Costello And the Roots. About Artwork.

The design was inspired by that of the legendary City Lights Pocket Poets Series, conceived by poet and publisher Lawrence Ferlinghetti and specifically it’s an homage to the cover of “Howl and Other Poems” by Allen Ginsberg, published in 1956. The genesis of this idea began with Blue Note Records president Don Was who saw the connection between Costello’s lyrics and the presentation of the poetry of Ginsberg, Ferlinghetti and Corso by City Lights who graciously supported the use of their celebrated design.
