So we have a thread about nin tattoos, albums, random comments, spotting etc.

We don't have a thread based on the artwork and visuals...and this baffles me.

Lets talk about the art, the visuals, the official posters, the unofficial stuff.

This is my favorite cover they've ever released:

Things Falling Apart has always been one of my all time favourite covers too.

BTW, does anyone have a good source for high quality NIN halo art? Perhaps with parental advisories and whatnot removed from certain releases? I usually just go to albumartexchange.com but sometimes their scans seem off for NIN. Or I just notice because I'm NIN obsessive. Yeah, definitely the latter.

Probably one of the better parts of that record (dont even get me started about all the SF remixes. although i do like metal and the great collapse ALOT).

Anyways, here is my favorite NIN art pieces (this wont surprise anyone here...)

Like a festering, deisesed, wound. Sums up TDS perfectly.

Ive always loved the salt trails. The shirt with the cracked logo on the back was the first NIN shirt i ever owned. Im really glad they decided to use this type of thing again on HM.

And of course, this is just such an iconic image. WOUND i believe the piece is called.


Id love to see the full collages sometime, and not just close ups of specific parts. These were originally from the wallpaper section on nin.com back when it still had the slip theme. I think they pulled that part of the site, but i do have em all saved full size if anybody needs/wants em, let me know and ill .rar em up. There is 11 total.

What SF remixes? Things Falling Apart was just a cool, solid, 7-song EP.

I must have gotten some EXTRA special edition version then because mine has And All That Could Have Been, Leaving Hope and Gone, Still worked into the mix... :)

Ive always liked this lil guy too...

Lol at "long line", this was what, the third? Unless their counting the HLAH single and its 9000 same sounding remixes.

I love all of the Russell Mills work. The textures and different techniques he uses just speak to me. That may just be the artist part of me. I was really excited when I heard he was working on the art for HM.

I might be making this up, but I remember seeing a picture of the TDS art but in its original state, hanging on a wall? Pretty sure TR has it in his house or something. Would be interesting to see how big it is irl.
