Our favourite record sleeves at the moment include the limited edition box that houses Fred Deakin’s triple CD, four hour mix extravaganza: The Triptych (box with bellyband shown above, contents shown below).
Open the clam card box to find the three CDs, each housed in a card sleeve, and also the booklet in which Fred reveals his thoughts about every single one of the 90 tracks included in the mix. Nice. Very nice!
Ah, the biro-drawing… Design trio Intercity produced the blue-on-white artwork for From The Vaults Vol.1 – a selection of UK breakbeat hardcore music from 1991-1993, mixed by Nicky Blackmarket.
Label: Sublogic Recordings
Come on in, the water’s fine! Perhaps the weirdest sleeve we’ve seen this year, this is the album cover for Panda Bear‘s forthcoming album, Person Pitch by collage specialist Agnes Montgomery. Label: Paw Tracks
You know those old portraits in stately homes where the subject’s eyes stare at you no matter where you stand? Well, the sitter in Christian Thoelke’s painting (that appears on the latest volume of label Get Physical‘s regular mix CD, mixed by DJ Dixon), stares constantly over your right shoulder.
No matter where you stand. Spooky
