How to make your own record sleeve

Lord Bassington-Bassington has a certain hankering for people who put some extra affection into their releases. So when a friend of us here at Bassington Manor asked for some tips about how to package an upcoming release by his new project, His Lordship couldn't help but think of a release by Norwegian neofolk band Gyron V as an example of how to accomplish a lot with simple means.

And as we had to take pictures (thanks to Lady Mju for the help) of the release to send to him anyway, we might as well publish them in the Chronicles. And also use the opportunity to wish him a splendid birthday!

Gyron V's Traditionalist E.P. - produced in 25 hand-made copies, of which Lord Bassington-Bassington is the proud owner of one – is surely a prime example of how stylish releases one can produce with some cardboard, scissors, a pen and an artistic flair.
