Mellon Collie Cover Art

I have always loved the album art for The Smashing Pumpkins’ Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness so I’m posting it here, some of the images might be from The Aeroplane Flies High box set. It was illustrated by John Craig and designed by Frank Olinsky (also responsible for Sonic Youth’s iconic covers (-:). More info from AIGA: http://designarchives.aiga.org/entry.cfm/eid_7340. Apparently the Smashing Pumpkins font is Glorietta.
