Gorgeous, as usual for my projects with Motorbooks. It’s full-colour throughout, with a die-cut triangle in the hardboard slipcase. The slipcase features silver, rainbow reflecting prism rays, which are also on the book. The book also features embossed white lettering.

If you haven’t guessed, the book is a 50-year anniversary celebration of the iconic 1973 album, The Dark Side of the Moon (you might have heard of it).
