Nice threat here! Thanks for the interesting thoughts and information, Sammy and Cimber!
About the "Praise for life" which he revitalized:
I think that's the theme for an elderly daddy!
I believe, it is a really huge joy having a baby at the age of 58, don't you think? I suggest this personal experience enabled PG to having a new approach to creativity. It's to do with his authenticity, which we all love

. . .what we forgot:
there is also a pic showing the retina (?) in the back of the "SMB"-booklet.
What comes spontaneously in my mind for the DVD-booklet and package:
You could combine pictures of Peter, the New Blood Orchestra, Mark Foster, Dickie, Ane Brun and Melanie, John Metcalfe with the laser show and background images/shots from the screens. A kind of collage out of everything - in combination with anatomical shots (microscopic like the blood/ hematological shots and/ or macroscopic shots from various organs like the heart).
Another cool combination would be to add also anatomical drawings - like the great Leonardo da Vinci did some centuries ago - these drawings look very ancient and professional.
brainstorming :-] . . .

Great idea Cimber. I'm sure the new artwork will be wonderful.

What can be seen there on the "New Blood"-CD-album cover ?
My 1st thought was something like a "morula" or "blastula"-pic taken from the human "embryogenesis"-stadiums - I could be wrong. I see something like a pipette under it. (Not sure about the size of a morula right now.)

First time i thought it was a funny hat but looking at it twice it seems it's black legs with something green in the middle! :-]

Thanks for the link, Duddy. There's an even larger version of the New Blood cover there.
I had a feeling the cover showed a magnified view of a cell. I thought it was a white blood cell, but Marc reveals it to be an embryonic stem cell. That must be some magnificent magnification to get that shot! I assume the stem cell has been artificially coloured, as pictures taken with an electron microscope (what are called micrographs) come out black and white.

Interesting AgentSage - never knew that about microgrpahs. It doesn't look artificially coloured but then you never can tell! The overall effect is v. delicate though.
