Handmade albums

Limited edition hand printed albums using linocut techniques. From the start our aim was to make these CDs as handmade and individual as possible. For the artwork we have decided to print each cover from several original linocut printing blocks. As no two prints turn out exactly the same, each cover is unique, which really appeals to us, even though the process is more time consuming. The spines have been handwritten.

We also wanted to use materials that are more environmentally friendly, so the covers are made from 100% recycled card with no shrink wrap. (The CDs are still plastic as a recycled card alternative doesn’t yet exist. When they’re invented we’ll switch straight away.)
