Default MCIS booklet pictures

As we all know MCIS booklet contains one little picture for every song but I just wondered what's the story behind every picture. Does they mean something? Who has desingned them?

This came to my mind after I saw a single release from one shitty finnish artist and the single had the same picture on it that is contained in the MCIS booklet with the song Lily. Link below.

i believe it was taken somewhere in california. i don't know the name or exact whereabouts but that big array of solar panels does exist. it features in the movie Gattaca (which is an incredible movie btw) and as far as i know it was shot entirely in california.

Okay, I asked straight from this Finnish artist and try to translate it...(I do not speak or write perfect english but they who seems to have a problem with that can fuck off)

In the 1900th century there were these companys who sold plates which were used for pressing pictures to magazines and these plates were sold directly to magazinepublishers. The picture incl. with the song lily is one of these plates but there is a lot of these plates and it crossed my mind that maybe all of these pictures are originally from these plates...

This crappy Finnish artist found and used the 'lily'-picture from the book Old Time Advertising Cuts and Typography by Dover which is a collection of these plates...

Yeah, I know it. People here are more interested in suggesting titles for the upcoming album (wtf...can't figure out what's so interesting in that)

One of those was featured in Top Gear, can't remember where but they tested the Bently continental GT there.

I always used to wonder why there was no pic for 'Beautiful' (in the uk version at least).
