In Through the Out Door (Led Zeppelin) Easter Egg - Inner Album Jacket

On the inside album cover (hard cardboard), there
is an outline drawing on either side. One one
side, there's a drink, a pack of cigarettes, a
few almonds, money, a clean ashtray, etc. On the
other side, the drink is half gone, the nuts are
cracked, the cigarettes are smoked, there's change
on the bar, etc. Take a damp cloth or a sponge
and rub it across either side, and as you do,
color comes out on all the items.
Warning: this is not reversible. I recommend that
you do it just on one side, so you can show people
later (better yet, just 'color' one item at a
time, and you can show the effect to numerous

When this album first appeared in vinyl, it was wrapped in a brown paper like a grocery bag. You had to buy it and open it to see which of eight different versions of the album cover you had received. I had six of them at one point...all the covers were similar, with different angles of the same scene, some had a woman in the background, some didn't, some had the Fedora guy looking in a different direction, so forth.

Only earlier pressings of the record have the "magic paint" on the inner sleeve. Each of the six pictures shows the scene in the bar rom a different person's point of view, but they all center around the man at the counter (burning the "dear john" letter which we see in the ashtray on the inner sleeve)
