Refers To Purple Rain Tour


The tour book design fundamentally draws upon artwork and typography from the Purple Rain project, incorporating art used on the album and various single releases, together with stills from the film. Other backgrounds of lace, feathers and paisley design complement the project themes.

The front cover title lettering is embossed and reads, Prince and the Revolution 1984-85 World Tour. Credits and a list of acknowledgments feature on the inside front cover.

Several pages are devoted to pictures and hand-written, signed messages from Prince and each member of the Revolution, as well as bodyguard, Chick Huntsberry.

Other photographs are mostly of Prince, together with two of his dove, Divinity. One double spread has the opening lines to the song, Around The World In A Day on notepaper in Prince's handwriting.

Another double spread displays the front cover of each of Prince's album releases to date together with track listings.
