Album artwork of the week: Ghettoville by Actress

album artwork of the week

This is one of the most beautiful boxsets we've ever seen

The music business may be mainly about downloads these days, but a decent album cover design remains vital to the success of a new release, and a recent revival in vinyl has guaranteed a future for the discipline. Every week we pick our favourite album artwork, and today we take a look at the 'Ghettoville (opens in new tab)' boxset from British electronic musician Darren J. Cunningham, aka Actress (opens in new tab).

Designed by Inventory Studio (opens in new tab)with art direction by William Stein, this minimalist boxset really is a thing of beauty. Including both LP and CD formats as well as a 12" forty-page art book of abstract collages, you'll be hard pressed to find a better looking offering.

Released on Ninja Tune (opens in new tab) back in January, the wonderful packaging design (opens in new tab) also features some really rather beautiful type, with Actress' token triangle used throughout the album art.
