I got a heads up on Hard Format from one of the many TempRes Twitter accounts when they linked to the post on Eluvium's Life Through Bombardment. Hard Format is a super sleek site dedicated to showcasing some of the more finely designed & packaged music (like these Pan releases, Fennesz's Black Sea, Celer's origamied Mane Blooms). They seem to do a lot of scans, which I don't think are always the best way to display such beauties (evidence: Exhibit A / Exhibit B), but the attention to detail is really fantastic and all of the artwork really shines. Definitely a place that further proves music in a purely digital world will never win.
Update: No scans on the site. Everything is shot with a Nikon.
