Be careful – it’s a beast, though a truly beguiling one. Here are 142 pictures to prove the point. I can’t work out how to credit the owner of this gallery, but I’ll be happy to if anyone can supply his/her details. Many thanks to Jose for the heads up. Now all I need to do is win the lottery…

Notes As with the music here, so with the design: less is indeed more. Silhouettes of birds circling, type nowhere to be found on the cover, only on the labels. More birds within, wheeling over the sea. Lovely texture of thick card sleeve and vinyl inside.

Notes We hang our collective head in shame. It’s taken us over two years to feature something by Neville Brody. Then again, in our defence, it’s not the work he’s most famous for. Micro-Phonies though is an absolute beauty with its hints of wayward surgical procdures, gunsights and typesetting. That recurrent elastoplast shape really reminds us of the shape used by Matthew Barney in the Cremaster Cycle. Some ’80s graphic design looks all too steeped in that decade’s questionable values, but this transcends its time. And you have to love that font.
