As I'm pillaging The Wire's content, I might as well reference the excellent section known as Inner Sleeve. This is an ever growing archive featuring an individual (musician, visual artist, designer, label owner, writer, etc) choosing and discussing his or her favourite piece of music related design. An online selection is to be found here.
The above is an especially nice example featuring a Finnish techno release by Ø : a.k.a. Mika Vainio who later went on to commission some beautiful packaging solutions when working as part of, experimental trio, Pan(a)sonic.
