Q: Do the numbers on the cover of Thieves Likes Us mean anything?
A: [FAQ] No - they were taken from a board-game on a painted table in Blair Castle, Scotland. Peter Saville found the picture from a magazine called Country Life. There is no number seven, and TLU was the 7th single - this was accidental.
