new skin for the old ceremony website design : choose your skin

There are two layout versions, or "skins" for this fanlisting. Initially, I had started with a naturally darker layout to convey the darkness and depth of Cohen’s work, but then I thought a lighter, more naked side of Cohen and his music should also be exposed - hence the second, brighter layout.

Choose your favoured layout design from below:

Skin #1 preview
Skin #1 is the darker layout, featuring the lyric "I told you when I came, I was a stranger" from "The Stranger Song" - a song from Songs of Leonard Cohen (1967), and the first Cohen song I was exposed to. I still think this song is such an eloquent way of describing the secrecy, clarity and daring isolation of Cohen’s work.
Skin #2 preview
Skin #2 is the lighter layout, featuring the lyric "we pressed against the limits of the sea" from "A Thousand Kisses Deep", a song from Ten New Songs (2001). The main header graphic is a cut-out collage from New Skin For The Old Ceremony (1974). I love how openly intertwined the lovers are, clinging onto their sexuality in the waves.

I am highly grateful to the original photographer for taking, and sharing, this photograph with the world. Please visit the site disclaimer page for more details on the use of this photograph in this layout. Otherwise, please do contact me if you have any queries about the layout in general.
