Label: 4AD
Year: 2007
Designer: Art direction and design: Vaughan Oliver, design assistance: Chris Bigg

  1. This is really quite lovely, I’ll have to look into this.

  2. I hope that anyone interested bought this already as only 2000 copies were available worldwide [with 500 allotted for the 4AD online store] with 4AD vowing that it would never be re-pressed.

  3. I always wonder about limited editions and why they’re made that way – is it ever anything other than an attempt to increase sales?
