Notes Two lovely releases from Taiga Records. The quality of materials is highly impressive, super heavyweight card sleeves and heavy vinyl. The Map album is a double vinyl with the fourth side etched on both vinyl and the label itself. The Daniel Quin sleeve, as I hope you can tell from the photographs, features custom letterpress embossing. Also included is a sealed envelope which contains a further print (image 7). Truly impressive quality.

This post took a long time to sort out, thanks to Andrew Lange for his patience.

  1. The letterpress work on the Quin record was done by a Minneapolis letterpress shop called Studio on Fire. They’ve got an extended post on their blog about the production (along with some extra images). Ben (who runs Studio on Fire) is a great guy and an amazing letterpressman.
