Do you mean the picture on the back of the hard cover? The one where
his chair looks like it just exploded? That is good -- not just
because of the "exploding" chair and the Bach score on the piano. I
like that picture, I just wish I had a larger copy without the cover
blurbs. Great expression -- I keep expecting him to start saying
something about Bach.

I also like pictures that show Glenn conducting, whether or not he's
playing, because that is so Gouldian. But so are pictures that show
him talking, thinking, making a joke, etc. Maybe I should've asked
everybody for their 32 favorite pictures. ;->
