Neil Young Archives, Volume 1
Title: Neil Young Archives, Volume 1
Design: Gary Burden, R. Twerk & Co.
Paper: Journal pages and DVD/BlueRay wallet packs: Mohawk Via
Gary Burden's design of the Neil Young Archives, Volume 1 (1963-1972) has been nominated for a 52nd Annual Grammy Award in the Best Boxed or Special Limited Edition Package category.
The long-awaited luxe boxed set was conceived as a time-capsule of Neil Young's musical and personal journeys from 1963 to 1972. The elaborate box contains multiple cds/dvds/blu-rays (depending on the version, there are three), a replica of Neil Young's revealing personal journal with a faux embossed leather cover, and a "stash" box (look in the corners for reproductions of pot seeds). The box was designed to last a long time, and also designed with sustainability in mind. "The Mohawk paper we used is FSC-certified, recycled with PCW content and made with windpower," said Burden.
According to Burden's web site, they "needed a paper that could hold the heavy coverage and clarity of the images and hand written notes. We used Mohawk Via Vellum for the journal and decided to use it again for the 10 DVD/Blu-Ray wallet packs."
Burden and Neil Young have been collaborating on album cover art for more than forty years and have become lifelong friends. They still enjoy working together and are currently at work on Volume II, and a myriad of other packages.
