The Smiths "Louder Than Bombs."
Offset lithograph poster. 560x862 mm, 22x34 inches. Rough Trade, Sire Records. 1987.

This double album was a compilation mostly of B-side tracks that had been previously unreleased in the United States. The image features a photograph of playwright Shelagh Delaney, photographed in 1961 by Arnold Newman. Her play, A Taste of Honey, was a major influence on Morrissey, and snippets of her prose proliferated in his lyrics.
