From Leonard Cohen: Remembering the Life and Legacy of the Poet of Brokenness by Mikal Gilmore (Rolling Stone: 30 November 2016) The entire article – an excellent read – is available at the link.
I don’t think we can look at the world without feeling a sense of distress at the vast suffering we see around us, and I wanted to comment on that. But I didn’t want to produce a slogan. I wanted to produce something that was closer to the heart and convey the sense of impotence we have about dealing with it.

This entry is part of a series of posts dedicated to Leonard Cohen Album Logos.
The apogee of Leonard Cohen Album Logos exhibitions is The Essential Leonard Cohen album,1 a collection of Cohen’s songs first released in 2002 and re-released in August 2008, that includes tracks from all studio albums released before 2002 except the Death of a Ladies’ Man. Although the cover displays no logos, the inserts, the background behind the CD holders, and the back of the album cover are replete with symbols, seven that have already been featured in this series, and one new, gratifyingly obscure insignia.
