Packaging
Obi:Not as such - Standard Russian equivalent.
Cover:

Gatefold with the lyrics printed on the back cover - apparently a first for a popular music album.

Cover by MC Productions and The Apple staged by Peter Blake and Jann Haworth photographed by Michael Cooper.

Wax figures by Madame Tussauds.

Some years later Peter Blake wrote: "The album sleeve was the first to feature printed lyrics, and it was one of the first to have a gatefold sleeve. It was also the first to have anything other than a plain inner bag too, the first pressing coming in a slightly psychedlic sleeve design by Simon and Marijke of the Fool. And we also had a crad with the cut-outs, which I originally intended to be a small packet with badges abd pencils and such like. That was stopped because it would have caused EMI big marketing problems."

Inserts (as per original):
  1. Inner sleeve (designed by "The Fool" creators of other covers including POCE-1033 - Incredible String Band (The) - The 5000 Spirits or The Layers of the Onion (1967 / 2006));
  2. cardboard sheet of cut out bits and pieces for becoming your very own Sgt. Pepper (credited on the bottom right hand side of the card to Peter Blake/ Jann Haworth).
Inserts (additional):Double sided card with each side of the record label.
Lyrics:Russian and English on 2 by 2 double sided foldout.
 
Editor Comments

The cover looks a little yellower than my original mono version but overall a great addition to any collection (and this site) and hopefully a taste of things to come from Japan one day.
