Iron Maiden – Killers. One of the best album covers ever.

The 1981 Iron Maiden LP Killers has one of the best sleeves I have ever seen. The artwork from Derek Riggs really captured the imagination. As an 11 year old kid I could not afford the album. That did not stop you from walking to record shops just to look at it. The detail in that drawing was mesmerising.

When a full length picture (for promotional purposes) showed more detail it was revealed that Eddies victim clutching onto him was none other than Margaret Thatcher. Improbably the sleeve then always looked even better…
