TP 61
TP 61 May 1981
Making his third cover appearance, Elvis Costello gets the bleak, gray treatment (Bob Leafe's inset photo is more exciting, but not flattering enough for a main image) on our newly narrowed publication. More significant for us, this was the first issue of Trouser Press to have proper national newsstand distribution. (The somber cover would be matched by our spirits months later, when our new domestic partner's slow and ineffective efforts left us distressingly short of income to defray the costs of a greatly increased monthly print run ...) Of note to design freaks: we retooled the logo a bit, overlapping letters to make it taller without getting wider.
