Notes Yet another design from Second Language that’s a sheer delight. The basic form is a three pane concertina unfolding upwards from the CD pocket. One side displays the lyrics for each of Klima’s 12 songs, the other images of Angele David-Guillou herself, album credits and thanks. Both are framed by graceful Art Nouveau floral borders that suggest just a hint of triffiditus.

The typography as well as the colour scheme of cream, baby blue and sepia work to great effect, but it’s the extras that makes Serenades and Serinettes a joy. There’s the sheet music pamphlet to By My Side with its chilling lyrics (exclusive to Second Language subscribers), the paper bag the whole thing arrives in and, tucked in with the CD, spied by its blue threads, a thaumotrope to spin while you listen to Klima’s hushed songs.
