Elephant enamel pin

$9.00

"The Glow Pt. 2" by The Microphones was released in 2001. It is considered by many to be their definitive work.

Phil Elverum (Mount Eerie, Microphones) explains the origin of the peculiar elephant on the iconic album cover:

"The picture of the elephant was taken from the cover of what appears to be an antique Dutch cookbook titled "Calvé-Delft's Winterboekje". On the inside of the cover it seems to credit "Leo Visser" as the artist. I think I found it on the floor of a bookstore I worked at as a teenager, just the cover torn off, and kept it around. Of course it is used without permission. Who do you ask? Have mercy."
