It's expensive and it comes in perspex

As the Creative Review report, Warp have unveiled details of the limited edition version of Aphex Twin's upcoming album, Syro. The 200-copy vinyl release will take in a list of all the marketing and production costs of the album, calculated per disc, alongside a bonus slab, all encased in a natty perspex case.

Says Ian Anderson, founder of The Designers Republic, the people behind the design: "The intense, and ultimately pointless detail of the list really appealed to me... it was good working with James Burton and the team at Warp to stretch out this mantra that tells the reader everything and nothing about the creation of what I hear was an intensely personal album in the making reduced to the numbers of an album in the marketplace." For £250, it's yours.
