The version that everybody got to know as the Ten album cover was pink, and it was originally intended to be more of a burgundy color and the picture of the band was supposed to be black and white.”
2. The original photo was taken by Lance Mercer.
3. The giant Pearl Jam letters were cut out of wood by Jeff Ament.
4. Jeff Ament is credited for the albums artwork and art direction. said Jeff: “The original concept was about really being together as a group and entering into the world of music as a true band…a sort of all-for-one deal.”
5. When asked about the cover photo’s meaning, Ten drummer, Dave Krusen said this: “I feel like it was unity. Jeff built this massive Pearl Jam wood cut-out. That thing we’re standing in front of was actual size! Jeff’s an amazing artist through and through.”
