Approaching Silence artwork
This is the cover of Zen Touyou Shashin by Shinya Fujiwara. Pictures from this book were used for the Approaching Silence artwork.
The art design for the regular album was done by Vaughan Oliver, Chriss Bigg and Martin Andersen at V23.
Notice on the second picture, that the left part of it was used for the front cover of Approaching Silence and a fragment of the right part was used for the US promo from Shakti.
