The cover, conceived by Glen Burg of Canada and created by Patricia Deschamps of Brazil, symbolizes our feelings about Gentle Giant. It depicts an ordinary village seen from above; however, the village has been built on top of a gigantic footprint. The footprint was made long ago, and the giant who passed through the countryside did not realize that people would build a village in his footprint. He was just walking by, thinking giantish thoughts, and minding his own business.
The meaning, of course, is that Gentle Giant passed through the music world, just as the giant in the picture passed through the countryside, leaving behind a legacy (the footprint) by making the music that they wanted to make. We, the fans, have built on GG's music to create this tribute.
