Text

Goldfrapp approached us to design a programme to accompany their one-off show at London’s Royal Albert Hall, in which they were to perform their sixth album, Tales of Us, in its entirety with backing from the London Contemporary Orchestra.

They wanted to create a printed accompaniment to the concert which conveyed a considered sense of craft—echoing the creation of Tales of Us itself, which was recorded over a period of two years in the English countryside. The programme contains the lyrics to the songs on the album alongside a range of photography and stills from the accompanying music videos, printed in black only, to echo the album art and styling of the concert itself. The publication is three-hole sewn with black thread and has a lightweight, embossed cover.
