Small Craft On A Milk Sea: Packaging Design and Music

This year musical artist, Brian Eno, released Small Craft on Milk Sea on Warp records, and whether you're a fan of his music or not, the presentation is a thing of beauty.

According to Hard Format, the 48 minute album was released in a range of formats including "an expensive and already sold-out Collector’s Edition complete with “A real copper plate, etched with the title and unique edition number embedded in the spine of the slipcase”, the Limited Edition Box Set covered here, standard CD digipak and multiple digital download formats."

The album package contains two 12″ records and two CDs, one containing the album, the other the bonus tracks. The cover photograph is "underscored by a gold, foil-blocked strip." All of the album's text is contained on one 12 x 12 inch card, encased within the folder that also contains the two CDs. By limiting the text to one insert, they truly let the images and treatments and the actual packaging design shine.
