The beauty of packaging

My minor at university was package design. I tried illustration, but every illustration I did was like having a baby. (I decided having babies was best left to women.) After a few semesters of hard labors, I fit easily into the package design area of studies. (Part of the improvement was not just me - it was a better professor in that area.)

So anyhow, my sister Amy (who has had three babies) sent me this CD set. She bought it at a charity shop because she liked the packaging. I like the packaging too. To me, her string "ribbon" and the attached note were as much a positive part of the package design as the CD cover itself!

What's the CD? the Live looks like the font style from the covers of Chicago's albums in the 70's.

"Live" is a rock group from the late 1990s.

You're right - it does look like Chicago's logo!
