Live At Metropolis Studios DVD+CD
>= In a dire year of hardly any electronic music live concerts being released this easily comes top with the Heaven 17 crew on top form at an intimate gig with all the favourites being played.
Snow Globe 3xCD Erasure Information Service (EIS) box set (3000 copies worldwide)
>= Incredible design with attention to detail obviously paramount AND so many goodies included (presentation box, signed Christmas card, festive tree bauble, desktop calendar, set of postcards, sweets, balloons and an Erasure themed cocktail book!). What more could you want? Andy and Vince Socks or an actual Erasure snow globe maybe? - box set art direction by Paul A. Taylor (Mute) and manufactured by Key Production
Electric "The Electric Box" (350 copies worldwide)
>= Gorgeous, evocative, neon 80s throwback (just like the album) and beautiful but very expensive (the price puts it in second place) - design by Farrow in collaboration with PSB and The Vinyl Factory
Ameratsu 7" vinyl single with 8" 'floppy disk' sleeve (100 hand numbered unique copies worldwide)
>= Just goes to show you don't need to charge £500 for a lovely bit of clever design. This vinyl record comes in an original 8" floppy disk sleeve with individual writing on it, all contained within a black metallic envelope. Retro, different and very desirable - design concept by Graham Holden (@opensussex)
Just like the albums, this year was also a tough year to choose from with some great designs and packaging. Honourable mentions must go to:
