Connotation & Denotation of "Coldplay- A Rush Of Blood To The Head"

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

The cover is a graphic made on a computer it is gray and looks as though it is falling apart or blowing away. You can see this by how the designer has done this as he has lines and things that I can only describe as stalactites in a cave, this adds the impression that the figure is ether; moving forward at high speed, has been lying on its back for a long time or has been blown with high winds.
