Pelle Gudmundsen-Holmgreen’s music is rooted in the everyday and he wants that quality in any images that should represent his music. His Plateaux are nine quite seperate, climbing levels containing musical ‘objects’, each one different.

For the cover artwork, I took a photograph of a pile of books and retouched the title texts onto the spines using fonts as close to the original ones on the books as possible.
