Backwards "e"


What about this backwards "e" on the album cover?

I thought about this same theory on S&M when they had the logo bent slightly,I can remember thinking it was due to them admitting that this isn't Deep Purple to the full extent,but with a twist.

Same concept crosses my ming here,that either Roger or someone in the art dept,had this type of idea,to put the slant on the slant if you know what I mean.

I figured it was just continuing the whole "different reflection" theme on the cover.

Several (most?) of their album covers have been self-parodying, in some cases, but almost always reflexive to some extent.

TBRO -- a dinosaur chasing its own tail.
_|_ -- assumed dead, but still erect.

There's almost certainly some sort of self-reference in their current artwork, though probably not meant as anything to be taken too seriously.

It also creates a heart with the other "e".

Re: Backwards "e"


to me it looks like two faces talking to each other, and reminds me somewhat of Pink Floyd's Division Bell cover.
