A brief survey of recent and not so recent work includes the double CD of Draconis by legendary purveyors of noise rock Skullflower, released on Cold Spring. The brief called for a look that recalled the heady days of occult publishing in the 1970s, so a double CD book-like digipack was designed using a blue cloth-bound look, incorporating sigils and photographs by Skullflower’s Matthew Bower.

Other recent releases on Cold Spring include album designs for Khost, a picture disc of Laibach’s Neu Konservatiw and released this month, Hekatomb, a document of Mz. 412 performing at Cold Spring’s 21st anniversary, with photos from the evening adorning the digipack.
