Physical description

Paper inner-sleeve for the 12" long-playing record 'Clan of Xymox' recorded by the group of the same name. The overall design suggests a tactile, abstract collage design that has been printed in shades of green onto a surface similar to parcel paper. It is lettered with the tracklisting and credits in a typography that suggests having been created from individually cut-out and collaged letters.
