This album is also available in an absurdly over-the-top, limited edition 12" lathe cut record version, available only from Time Released Sound, comes in an edition of only 70 hand worked copies. Each of these high quality, clear, hand cut records with its 7 tracks comes in a beautifully modified, heavyweight recycled chipboard jacket. On the cover of each jacket is its own uniquely original, tipped on, industrialized and hand collaged 100+ year old religious print. Each print has been collaged/modified with painstakingly hand cut, equally ancient industrial engravings. Flip this collage up, and underneath is the textual credit sheet, archivally printed on vintage paper of an equal age. On the back of each record jacket is a modified mystical chart, also printed on the same old paper to match, and each is surrounded by extensive hand stamping created with a vintage set of French symbolist rubber stamps. Each record with its high quality, printed center labels comes in a black polylined inner sleeve, and the entire package comes in an outer heavyweight poly sleeve. As usual, the lathe cut records were hand cut in real time by Michael Lawrence at Bladud Flies, in Wales, UK
