THE NEW WORLD text was written and read by Matt Finney. PRELUDE TO THE NEW WORLD text which makes up the track titles was written by a death cinematic. each printed cd comes in a brown, hand printed envelope. the cd and book come in a hand made balsa wood and western red cedar veneer box/ gatefold. the covers consists of heavy weight printing paper with hand printed text and images, housed in a hand made vellum slip sleeve. all covers and vellum sleeves were cut and scored by hand and printed at the simple box construction studio. more detail images can be viewed in the simple box construction album for this release. for reviews of this release please go here.
::: SBC - 012 (book). this is a small format hand made version of a previously released very limited larger book of the same title (SBC - 013). all the pages were scored, folded and cut by hand, printed on bright white paper and stitched together. the horse stamp was drawn and designed by simple box construction and is based on a drawing entitled THOU ART THE HOPES SLAIN BY THE HANDS OF OUR ENTERPRISE. each page in the book was hand stamped. the stamping process ultimately destroyed the stamp as with each page the stamp was altered and cut away. each book is hand-bound in acid free brown charcoal paper and black linen tape. all the covers were also hand cut and stamped. more detail images can be viewed in the simple box construction album for this release.
