Notes When this arrived in the post, I was impressed by the weight of the sleeve and the record, but the design appeared to be a little underwhelming. It was just a little too simple. I let it sit on my desk for a couple of days, then on impulse I peered inside the sleeve and saw that the white outer band could be removed. On doing so I discovered the artwork on the reverse of the band and the letterpress details secreted underneath. The hidden details suddenly made the whole design make sense. I can’t think of any other similar examples on Hard Format, except perhaps the colours printed on the inside sleeve of Junior Boys’ Begone Dull Care.

  1. Reminds of the time when, as a young man in 1979, I failed to get the joke that Elvis Costello’s single ‘Accidents Will Happen’ was deliberating printed inside out and I carefully opened it out and re-glued it the ‘correct’ way. Took me years to realize the original intention. Doh!

    Great site by the way. I’ll have to photograph some of my more interesting item from my collection.
