Packaging or artwork?

I was catching up with a friend for coffee yesterday and arrived a lot earlier than I needed to.

So I killed a bit of time in the shop next door. A collectors' DVD store.

To be honest I could while away hours in places like this.

What really took caught my eye this time round was an entire bookcase dedicated to Criterion DVDs.

If you're not familiar with them Criterion DVDs are the work of people who know and love film.

Seriously love it.

And every disc they release is beautifully packaged. Generally in a box with cover art unavailable elsewhere.

These are three of my favourites.

There are tons more out them if you want to hunt them down.
