The Suburban Knight - The Art Of Stalking

Another very impactful cover for the Belgian pressing on R&S of the legendary Detroit Artist James Pennington.

R&S designer just dropped all the elements of the original design, including the knight's "shield"). The design has obviously a very menacing theme, the skull  being reminding of the human trophies collected by the Predator in the 1987 movie.
Beyond this thematic,  the effectiveness of the design is reinforced by the use of a classic and serious typography, that  brings a factual feeling. The Knight is serious, and stalking is not joking ;-)
The original pressing on Transmat, that had no picture cover, had a label artwork credited to "The Tri", in the same vein than most of the Transmat releases of the year.
