Iron Maiden - artworks with Eddie

Do you guys like the NPFTD cover ?

I like it more without the digger (remastered edition from 1998), but the original one is also good - classic Eddie from around the first 3 albums (back to the roots, haha) and a little inspiration from the LAD cover maybe.....

I remember an interview (around AMOLAD era) where Steve and Nicko said that they do not like that cover so much.

For me a album cover should not look so real (like TXF album cover - though Eddie is fearsome and great.... or the futuristic city in BNW or the DOD album cover and even AMOLAD but to a way less extent). I like when they are like comic book (basically all other Maiden album covers).

I remember when I saw it at the shop the release date and it was like a little downer compared with Seventh Son, It had a strange Eddie and the Maiden logo smaller than the other albums. It also hadn't an illustrated backcover like the others, suddenly a pic with the band and the new guy, Janick, all was a little weird but exciting at the same time.
At the begining was a little dissapointed but liked me much later. I remember that Metal Hammer magazine included a four parts giant poster that I collected and hanged on my room, it was awesome! It's much better than The Final Frontier and Dance of Death of course.

Did you know: according to Derek Riggs, he created the cover for TNOTB album for 2 days and the cover for SIT album for 2 months and a half.

It's Dan Mumford's style

These artworks also looks in similar style as the ones for HBTN and SOTV ->

and they are also probably done by him (especially the ones for Powerslave and GOTN).
