The legendary, and somewhat scary album cover was painted by Barry Godber who was actually ‘just’ a computer programmer. The paranoid face on the cover is the ‘Schizoid Man‘, as in the most famous song on the album, 21st Century Schizoid Man; and on the inside sleeve it’s the Crimson King himself. Unfortunately Barry Godber died of a heart attack in February 1970, shortly after the album’s release. The cover was to be his only painting and is now owned by Robert Fripp.
