    Oh wow, I absolutely love the St Paul’s Cathedral piece; just beautiful and a great selection for best in book.

  • Steve

    its all a bit retro innit?

  • :(

  • nice! wheres the cosmic nuggets though? shame shame, know your name.. 😉 😉

  • stu

    you really dont understand how ACE the cover is untill you hold it in your hands – good work

  • Tell the truth, I wish CR hadn’t been redesigned. I miss the old bigger format. Issues like this looked a whole lot better with a bit more space. While I’m complaining I might as well mention that I find the text difficult to read (for us oldies) and looking very Herb Lubalin retro.

    Lovely work though. Exceptional cover.
