Why does my POP have the 'mart arch on it, though it was made before the tour? weird.

I'm sure the pre-production of Popmart was in planning within a year of when POP was released. Making it possible to to include in the album art. Plus, U2 started the Popmart tour less than 2 months of album release.

Because Pop was a disaster in planning. The tour was booked way before the album was done, so the tour was planned while the booklet wasn't even in print yet.

Not only does it have the arch, but there's a little sketch of a "Popmart" with shoppers inside the booklet near the back, right?

The Pop booklet is my favorite, best one by the band.

A funny sidenote; in the Pop booklet photos, Adam has a deep tan, and when I first got into U2, I was Maybe 13, and I only owned The Joshua Tree and then I got Pop, I thought to myself, "Oh, they must have replaced the basist with a black guy, cool!"

I love that booklet, though. Aside from Achtung Baby, it's my favorite; I really love the silver mixing with the pictures.
