LP album and jacket for the album `UB44' by the reggae/pop music group UB40; front and back of jacket are solid black; hot-stamped into the cover is an embossed, square, rainbow-colored hologram on foil, showing the letters UB made out of rock, sitting on a rock ledge; depending on the angle of light, one can also see the smaller numbers 44 floating in front of the `B' in UB.

Please note that due to the unique challenges of holography as a medium, high-resolution digital images are not available for most items in the holography collection. Please contact us for more information on reproducing images of holograms.
