The album sleeve features photography by Anton Corbijn, who also did the photography for Annie Lennox's Diva
album and directed the video's for U2's "One
" and The Killers' "Andy, You're A Star
." The sleeve's photography features catheters and various other hospital accouterments. Pierce explained the thinking behind it to the Observer Music Monthly
March 2008: "The decision to use the little plastic catheters that connect the IV drip to your vein was because they kind of looked like crosses. They are so small and simple that people don't really place much importance on them. For some people, though, these small, simple things are the most important things in the world. They save lives."
