    Isn’t that great? The nugget of extra info from a primary source is marvelous, but it’s also an opportunity to appreciate the art again. There are some really nice touches on the drawing.

    The Kick Inside was such a brave album sleeve, totally unique. In the UK/Europe, EMI could have gone with the more conventional ones as issued in Japan/ Canada/USA, but somehow the ‘Kite’ image won. Del’s reverse image was just too small, so maybe a reissue would rectify matters.

    I LOVE this artwork. My late sister taught me to read at the age of four from this album sleeve – so it holds some precious memories for me.

    It still has to be, without doubt, my one and only desert island disc!
