Caleb Klauder - Dangerous Me's and Poisonous You's

There may be no better album art that celebrates both the joy and precariousness of life than the cover Dangerous Me's and Poisonous You's. Each of the pair, enraptured in the moment of dancing, of living, has at the same time, a vehicle to a quick end. The background isn't the red of a warning, but the crimson of the blood that runs in the dancers' veins. This isn't a message about life, but life itself.

I think the cover also taps into the edgy faith of snake handlers. It is fundamentalism taken to an extreme, but there is also an awesome and simple truth for those who can believe in that way.

I've never seen this--I like it, in an immediate reaction kind of way. It's not as sexy as Smell the Glove, but what is?

This is a wonderful album cover, and your scan doesn't do it justice. May I request that you re-scan at a higher resolution, and also link to a larger version of it?

yeah, the resolution had me initially thinking they were a pair of devils and I was like, whaaaaaaat? not Bob! Good message, though.
