Design and Production

The 12CD Box consists of a slipcase and twelve CD wallets custom-made from black, heavyweight cardboard with individually designed, industrial-grade aluminium foil stickers. Each box includes a set of twelve postcards and a numbered and signed poster fold-out with release notes and an essay by Petar Milat.

The packaging is handcrafted by master bookbinder and restorer Marita Kuhn and will be ready to ship with the first two CDs and postcards in August 2017, followed by 10 more CDs to be shipped in October 2017.

The Digital Edition comes with a dedicated PDF for each volume and is released every second half of a month from June 2016 on.

The design for RADIANCE was developed by Caro Mikalef for Cabina.
