Barney Bubbles: Armed Forces Artwork, By Chris Estey

I bought Armed Forces by Elvis Costello for my 14th year birthday present when it came out, from the import section of Budget Tapes N Records in Kennewick, WA. I had never been as excited about an album’s packaging before studying Barney Bubbles’ work on that one, which I wasted many hours absorbing, loving the album (after spending three days wondering what the hell it was).
