The nicely silkscreened cd's are built into the front and back cover of a 10" book. The covers are thick chipboard with a blue and orange Chris Bigg scibble on the front and a cryptic number thing on the back (33 and 45 rpms, 15 and 300/500). The first half of the book has a short story about the development of 4AD along with various v23 photos. The second half of the book gives each of the bands on disc 2 two pages and a very short description. Also, the book has a shiny gold 4AD logo stuck on the front and the whole thing is bound with binding tape. At first, it looked like it was taped back together, but after closer examination, it is part of the design. A t-shirt came with the package. It's grey with the blue and orange design and the number thing. The shirt is 25% polyester! Limited edition of 3000 copies. 2500 were shipped til the USA as a promo item for Warner Brothers and US retailers. Also released in Taiwan as «The Sounds of 4AD», which might be a bootleg. «A Thousand Stars Burst Open» plays as a part of the last track and not listed on the cover.
