What about the covers? no 11

For 2009 - Montt Mardié - Skaizerkite

Patrik Berg designed this one. The title means a person suffering from hybris and was also the name of a New York gang from the 40's (aka Sharp Boys). Both definitions fit with Monty's image of course. The design is simple and minimal, with the photograph of the front cover standing out. The packaging is a gatefold carton.

For the 00's - No.11 - The Organ - Grab That Gun

This cover reminds me a lot of Piet Mondrian paintings. The graphic design is by Randy Iwata, Jenny Smyth (group member-organ), Mo Salemy, a Vancouver-based artist and David Cuesta, a Canadian designer.
