ACL 2017 ~ The Year’s Best Packaging

The further we travel into the digital era, the fewer physical releases we see.  A year ago, the digital market was bypassed by streaming.  Most people are content to hear rather than to own.  It takes a special presentation to

Enrico Coniglio & Matteo Uggeri ~ Open to the Sea

The first thing one notices is the fabulist artwork of Flavio Parrino (1916-1994).  The cover image implies a Victorian summer at the sea: families walking along a calm shore, encountering an inventor and a strange contraption, the man perhaps remarking

My Home, Sinking ~ Sleet
