For the debut album of Rabbit Children, designer and illustrator Brian Danaher produced a luscious, 2-color letterpress package that was sent to print and blog music journalists. Inside, digital printing showcases a handful of illustrations inspired by the lyrics. Seeing music packaging like this sure makes you wish the art of album design wasn’t dying a slow MP3 death.
