Just stuck the catalogue on my phone there and, man, it's sweet as fuck scrolling down through the tracks seeing all that artwork fly by.

 

It's hard not to pick the 94-96 period of artwork, especially the Tri Repeatae liner gear, but i think the run from Confield to Untilted has to be my favourite.

 

Really hoping they move away from the circles/squares motif soon, after 8 years it's quite hard to get excited about. Having said that, the artwork for the bleepstore sets was fucking boss.

 

Would be quite nice to see more of this -

Had a lovely industril, cargo-y "Alien" feel to it...

AE_LIVE, Quaristice, EP7, Draft 7.30, L-event, Oversteps, Move Of Ten, Basscad,EP, Cavity Job. (In that order I guess, with AE_LIVE being my most fav of them all.)

I like EP7 aesthetic of straight line clusters, Quaristice for spacing/kerning of letters, Oversteps for black holes/zen enso versions

 

As a whole it's hard to decide, a tie between Quaristice steel case and Bullwallet

For me it's Chiastic/Envane. Love the color scheme, typography & architectural elements. looks exactly like the music sounds.

Untilted and Envane both have top notch artworks.

Amber indeed fits the music very well but it's so weird having an actual photograph as an Autechre artwork, it somehow feels wrong to me.

If we're judging actual physical objects rather than just the images, the Quaristice steel case and EP7 frosted case are both pretty awesome.

Exai is a close second to Quaristice Limited Edition.

 

Design and execution is so perfectly done.

I still kick myself for not buying the Quaristice Versions CD, but I was a bit underwhelmed on first listen (and subsequently for a year or two) with much of Quaristice. It looks so fucking nice.

Draft
Untilted
Gantz Graf vídeo

God I love Alex Rutterford.
If you watch the first scene of his PSP advert closely you'll notice paintings that look like Untilted cover in the background of the art gallery... Also the cover iterations in his website are mindblowing

Then

Confield
AE-onesix
Tri rep
Amber
Quaristice

Also love the drawings in Gescom's keynell (on the Disc itself not the EP cover)

Draft. there isn't a lot to choose from in the newer releases tbh, much of it is too minimal for my liking.

quaristice

 

ae_live (the font remix)

...

 

onesix style was pretty rad, too.

 

untilted gets special mention cos it fits the music exeptionally well imo.

 

draft is cool but doesn't fit the music at all tbh.

 

lp5 lp version packaging is good packaging.

 

exai i can't unsee some stupid face in those blocks :( (to the left... don't look for it, you've been warned!)
