Vigilant fans will recognise the masterful touch of Colin Elgie, who has provided a visually striking original illustration for the outer box cover, having previously collaborated with Al on his 'Year of The Cat' album.
Rounding off this smorgasbord of Al Stewart delights is a 'Year of the Cat' print, individually signed by Colin Elgie, three posters including one specially designed by Colin Elgie & a 24-page Collectors' Book, detailing all the rare recordings in the set.
