Artist Various
Title Lonely Is An Eyesore
Label 4AD
Year 1987
Design Vaughan Oliver
Music 4AD
Notes There is an amazing, tremendously valuable wooden box limited edition of this 4AD compilation. This is not that one. Here is a picture of that version replete with foliage for you to feast your eyes upon:

Terribly overrated I’m sure you’ll agree. You’d laugh in the face of anyone offering you a copy wouldn’t you?

This version is rather lovely in itself with truly creative use of type typical of Mr Oliver. Look at that first ‘L’ in the title, what a lovely gestural sweep. Just that one letter against Saville’s minimalism from last week speaks volumes about the two designers. Chalk and cheese.

Where Saville, if he had ever been moved to devise or deploy such an ‘L’ in the first place, would have left it at that, Oliver goes on to add a variety of riches to play against it – the textures redolent of printing ink (which you can almost smell) and etching plates, the widely spaced artist/track listing (which in close up is a real delight), those colour bars inching in from the left and the bottom right corner (I’ve no idea what they’re there for, but they work) and that printed, not real, masking tape at the top. And that’s just the front cover!

Oh and in case you don’t read the news section. Hard Format is 5 years old!
