Manifesto is the sixth studio album by Roxy Music, and was released in March 1979 by E.G. in the UK, Polydor in Europe and by Atco Records in the US.
The cover design which featured a variety of mannequins (a concept also used for the covers of the singles from the album), was created by Bryan Ferry with fashion designer Antony Price amongst others.
The picture disc version of the album featured a version of the design in which the mannequins are unclothed. The cover’s typography, as well as the album’s title, were inspired by the first edition of Wyndham Lewis’s literary magazine Blast.
