Die Cut Covers :
Die cutting of the cover image or inserts is probably the most common technique employed to create gimmick covers. It's probably also in most cases the cheapest.
There are thousands of die cut covers. Here are a few of the more popular and best known releases.
VICP-5442,3,4 : 1994-09-21
These had been preceded by a much earlier Lotus and a US release of some Rolling Stones albums repackaged for Japan a few short months before these. Neither of these earlier releases was true to the original vinyl although the Stones came close.
The earliest true Minis were two series of MCA Jazz releases from March 1994 (MVCZ-26 to MVCZ-45) including this example: Death and The Flower.
LIST-007 : 2006-02-07
This is a work in progress project and due to its size it will take some time to finish.
Book cover images from different countries are welcome (or the ones included but with better image resolution).
