Notes Many thanks to our guest poster Philip Rhoads for this one, Philip writes:

A hefty beast weighing 2.25kg, this 7 LP set beautifully combines the best aspects of Music Design and Bookbinding. Each record is placed into individual card jackets – each jacket bearing a specially commissioned drawing by Jeanie Lynn Paske, and the jackets are then bound into a linen covered hardback book. The text on the spine is embossed and metallic stamped and the front of the whole package has an individual print sealed onto it.

Inside the front cover is an original library card, individually numbered (this set was limited to 1000 copies) and signed by Matthew Cooper (Eluivium), Jeanie Lynn Paske and Jeremy Devine – with the owner of the set being the final name inscribed onto the card by Temporary Residence Records. It is this fine attention to detail that makes this set so utterly covetable and gives the owner the sense of having something uniquely beautiful.

Inside the back cover is a stunning 12” X 36” pull out insert illustration with the final piece of artwork by Jeanie Lynn Paske, and the briefest of credits, printed in – fittingly – old Typewriter font.

  1. The book & library card aspect is perhaps a little too reminiscent of the special edition of Radiohead’s 2001
    ‘Amnesiac’, but this is indeed an item of rare beauty. The illustrations are incredible. I want one!

  2. Yes, what with Ghostwriter too, the library card thing probably needs to stop now. Unfortunately, for me, they’re the saving grace of this release. I can’t get on with the drawings at all I’m afraid.

  7. Hey there! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any problems with hackers?
    My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing several weeks of hard work due to no data backup.
    Do you have any solutions to stop hackers?

  8. Unquestionably consider that which you stated. Your favourite reason appeared to be at the web the simplest thing
    to keep in mind of. I say to you, I certainly get annoyed even as other people consider concerns that they plainly
    don’t recognise about. You managed to hit the nail upon the highest and outlined
    out the whole thing with no need side-effects , people could take a signal.

    Will probably be again to get more. Thanks

  10. Hey, I think your website might be having browser compatibility issues.

    When I look at your website in Chrome, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer,
    it has some overlapping. I just wanted to give you a quick heads up!

    Other then that, awesome blog!
