The Adventures of Tom The Lion

Forget the plastic jewel-case – Tom The Lion’s album (released today) comes in a rather lovely wooden box with a hinged lid…

We featured Tom The Lion‘s slip-cased 10 inch vinyl album release the other week (view that post here) but we’ve just clapped eyes on the wooden-boxed CD album (released today) and felt it warranted its own post…

Also created by Daniel Mason of Something Else, the hinged lid of the wooden box is screenprinted with the Tom The Lion illustration by Konstantinos Gargaletsos. Open the brass clasp and inside are two CDs housed in uncoated card CD wallets. One is the 13 track album (tracks from his two double 10″ vinyl EPs), the other contains a number of live recordings. A folded bible paper sheet contains all the lyrics and sleeve notes, and there are also two photographs included. Here are some pictures:

The wooden box is screenprinted with the Tom The Lion logo illustration on the front and the track names on the back. A simple brass clasp keeps the hinged lid shut.

This CD album package is exclusively available from Rough Trade records:
