So it's pretty fitting, then, that the poster advertising his new album is also frightening and confusing.
Featuring some sort of schematic diagram for what appears to be a hand hook of sorts, this poster doesn't really much sense. Last time I saw him, Jones had both his hands. And I'm pretty sure someone would've told me if he was involved in a freak accident.

Nonetheless, the poster does its job quite well -- the images here are startling enough to grab one's attention, that's for sure. And the used paper background adds a certain mystique to it as well.
Beyond that, it's pretty straightforward. The color scheme is simple. The text is uniform. And it's informative -- beyond showing off the surprisingly complicated set up for a hook hand, all the pertinent show details are included.
Also, it's not a design I've seen before. Major points there.
