London design group Mystery Design has created the sleeve for the CD Songlines presents World Music, a compilation of international tracks on the Manteca label, published in conjunction with Songlines magazine. The album features tracks from 37 of the year’s most successful world music albums. Mystery’s design is a ‘raw montage of past album covers of the artists featured on the compilation’, according to a spokeswoman for the group. The covers are treated in a silkscreen format using a palette of earthy pastels, while inside, the cover is constructed out of overprinted world maps. Mystery has also created the identity and the website for Manteca, the world music label of Union Square Music. Six other sleeve designs for the Manteca label have been designed.
