OPEN SPACE CD 43 - Pepples / Takahashi - does not contain a regular booklet. Instead the artwork, liner notes and 'lyric sheet' (the poetry used in the music selections) are presented on a double-sided 9” x 19” fold-out poster. The calligraphic poems are on the vertical ‘verso’, while the liner notes and musician biographies are set horizontally on the ‘recto’. As this poster format is only available with the physical CDs, we decided to include it as two separate pdf files for viewing on your computer screen, available as a bonus with the download.
