Cover design

The original album cover used a gatefold sleeve depicting, on the outside, blank picture frames labeled with the titles of the pieces: "The Old Castle", "The Gnome", etc. On the inside all the pictures were revealed, but one remains blank: "Promenade". (The musical piece, of course, is not about a picture, but represents a walk through the gallery.)


Some CD covers use only the "revealed" version.

Album Child Photo Sun (158 words)
And there are few albums, in which there is not a single kid picture.
When we picture kids, we receive true emotions, because they are less careful about good looks and do not inflict strains upon themselves when picturing.
At the same time, they are more emotional, and looking through their pictures makes adults in a way feel like kids for a moment.
Pictures at an Exhibition - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (1413 words)
Pictures at an Exhibition (or Pictures from an Exhibition) is a famous suite of 15 musical pieces, composed by Modest Petrovich Mussorgsky in 1874.
It was at Stasov's instigation that a posthumous exhibition of over 400 of the artist's works was mounted in the Academy of Fine Arts in St Petersburg, in February and March 1874, and Pictures at an Exhibition, composed a few months later, takes the form of an imaginary musical tour around such a collection.
This is based on a drawing of an elaborately carved clock representing the hut of Baba Yaga (a witch in old Russian legends).
