simple box construction presents THE NEW WORLD full length cd and PRELUDE TO THE NEW WORLD hand-bound book of photos. in essence this is two releases in one that are meant to compliment each other. the premium quality taiyo yuden cdr was printed in-house and features just under an hour worth of music. the book was also entirely printed and stamped in house and features 22 photographs and stamped artwork. both are limited to an edition of hand numbered 150 copies and are entirely hand made. each copy includes both items with corresponding edition numbers. all art work, photos, design and layout by simple box construction/ a death cinematic.
each printed cd comes in a brown, hand printed envelope. the cd and book come in a hand made balsa wood and western red cedar veneer box/ gatefold. the covers consists of heavy weight printing paper with hand printed text and images, housed in a hand made vellum slip sleeve. all covers and vellum sleeves were cut and scored by hand and printed at the simple box construction studio.
all the pages were scored, folded and cut by hand, printed on bright white paper and stitched together. the horse stamp was drawn and designed by simple box construction and is based on a drawing entitled THOU ART THE HOPES SLAIN BY THE HANDS OF OUR ENTERPRISE. each page in the book was hand stamped. the stamping process ultimately destroyed the stamp as with each page the stamp was altered and cut away. each book is hand-bound in acid free brown charcoal paper and black linen tape. all the covers were also hand cut and stamped.
Includes immediate download of 6-track album in the high-quality format of your choice (MP3, FLAC, and more), plus unlimited mobile access using the free Bandcamp listening app.
