Let me introduce to you one of the coolest vinyl packaging I’ve seen in my entire life.
Just take a look at this beauty and you’ll become a fan as well. This is the vinyl packaging for Explosions in the Sky’s 2011 album Take Care, Take Care, Take Care. The set contains a 10-panel quadruple gatefold cardboard jacket, with an enormous 18-panel full-color double-sided poster, and a full-color double-sided postcard – then all of that is tucked neatly inside of a full-color double-sided slipcase!
The LP comes in three different artwork variants – the interiors of the artwork are different colors. There are 3 different colored custom vinyl record pressing variants that match the corresponding colors of the artwork.
Assemble everything to come up with something like this:
Cooler than cool, right? Definitely, something you cannot download.
ARTIST: Explosions in the Sky
ALBUM: Take Care, Take Care, Take Care
