Tasked by Light in the Attic, ICLA was requested to help the Light in the Attic team design and develop the Lee Hazlewood Industries, There’s a Dream I’ve Been Saving Collection by providing a multitude of papers and fabrics from which to choose. The Light in the Attic team met in ICLA’s sample room to pour over the samples and select the appropriate materials. After hours of reviewing fabrics, leathers, papers, foils, and printing techniques, ICLA was given direction to produce a couple box samples from the selected materials for the client’s final approval.
The ultimate result of that selection process is a beautifully designed clam-shell, wrapped with burgundy linen, lined with printed linen liner and decorated with a debossed and silk-screened image of Lee Hazlewood on the cover of the clam-shell and gloss gold foil stamping on the cover and spine.
The clam-shell holds a fabulous 172-page 12” x 12” LP sized, smyth sewn case bound book with a printed laminated cover and burgundy linen quarter binding on the spine and gloss gold foil stamping on the cover and spine. A four CD anthology of the LHI label, consisting of 107 tracks, is found on the inside front cover of the book and a never-before-released 1970 film “Cowboy in Sweden” DVD is found on the inside back cover of the book.
The collection also includes a red Flexi disc, reproductions of Lee Hazlewood era ephemera, including six press photos, a reproduction plane ticket, and three CD discs, consisting of LHI 45’s, LHI LP’s and the LHI Catalog, which include almost every 45 single and LP ever released by Lee Hazlewood Industries and a reproduction of Lee Hazlewood’s original embossed LHI business card, inserted into the front end sheet of the book.
