"World Peace..." clone stamp info

Ok, so for everyone else like me who hates the clone stamp appearing all the time online, here are a few things:

1) Here is the artwork (although missing Harvest, etc) without the clone stamp:

It was originally posted here: http://www.morrissey-solo.com/attachment.php?attachmentid=31992


2) Furthermore, here is a scan I did of my CD copy:

3) And here is another higher quality one that I have replaced on the Wikipedia article, without the clone stamp:

Let's make these ones the ones we use all the time. I hate that friggin clone stamp!



More info in the comments and an additional note from Ryan.:

...whenever online articles pop up about the album, journalists tend to get the album cover from Wikipedia. I have since corrected the Wikipedia article with the non clone stamped version in an attempt to get the correct one out there more.

Cheers for clearing that up Ryan. But why would they do that, why? Why? Why?

I have no clue. It boggles the mind, particularly when it's in such plain sight and it's for an artist of Moz's caliber. Very unprofessional people working in the design department.

if its taken from a typical photo shoot then i would imagine there were many different shots tken with a few published so i dont know how many variations of that shot exist but id bet a bunch.

They also increased/lessened the wrinkles on his brow if you compare several of the pics above I posted.

oh yeah i totally forgot about the dog photo bit. now i get it. so how far apart are the photos from one another? wonder why they didnt just recreate the pose for one shot. im guessing harvest and money but maybe time as well.

p.s my a key seems to be sticking and i dont proof read well here so no offense if a stay a goes missing

They also tightened his jaw/neck, thinned him out, made his hair thicker and gave him more colour.

Ridiculous. He didn't need any of that.

Hey listen if Bieber is doing it, then everyone is at it. So why not Moz? Photography is all lies anyway, always has been.

He has to have approved the photoshopping. Based on the lack of photoshoots and TV appearances i would guess he's having some issues with ageing.

I think he did the clone stamp on purpose.

It's a cat. He snuck a cat into the cover and cloned it for some reason. It's not this particular cat, it may be an easter egg inside joke, like Tina did the cover and since she didn't have the album dedicated to her for political reasons, he let her sneak in her cat or something. Isn't she a graphic designer? I think it's an inside joke and the cat has been photoshopped in on purpose to even out the fact there's a dog on the cover or something. Who knows, but it was definitely done on purpose.

Fun fact: on the super deluxe edition of WPINOYB, the art card cover that's inside the box (vinyl size) HAS the clone stamp, but the CD inside doesn't have it.
