The Twin Dead Rose

Dead Rose, the debut album from NYC-based band The Twin, was born from the loss of the ever-so-addictive and wildly unpredictable drug called Love. The record was produced in 3 different varients of vinyl and is housed in 3 different mixed media printed LP jackets. The regular version was first CMYK printed on an inside out jacket and then the black illustrated bird and typography were letterpressed. The Special Edition w/ the Blob Vinyl variant comes housed in a custom, screen printed slip cover and is hand numbered. The white test press jacket was hand 3 color screenprinted.  Two shirts were also created from the existing artwork.
Screenprinting by Austin Kihn. Letterpress by Michael Louie.
