Yes is the tenth studio album by British electronic dance music band Pet Shop Boys. This limited-edition vinyl packaging is collaboration between Mark Farrow and the Pet Shop Boys, and produced by The Vinyl Factory.
It contains eleven tracks split over eleven separate super-heavyweight 200-gram custom vinyl pressing records in LA with covers made up of eleven coloured squares.
The cover design was inspired by German artist Gerhard Richter (who is referenced in the album’s first song, Love etc.) specifically his 4900 exhibition at the Serpentine gallery and the stained glass window in Cologne Cathedral.
See the resemblance…
The eleven Vinyl sleeves can be arranged like this:

The set also includes a twelfth sleeve (white), which contains a fine art giclee print, hand-signed and numbered by the Pet Shop Boys themselves.
There are only 300 copies of the box set worldwide and one will cost you £300.
The album’s cover was nominated in the 2010 Brit Insurance Design Awards shortlist in the Graphics category.
