2012 was the year that special editions really got special

From crowd-funded bands looking to bring their silliest psych/horror fantasies to life, to dedicated reissue imprints striving to deliver definitive editions of classic albums, via small independents and major labels alike just wanting to put an original spin on their packaging, no technique or material was out of bounds in the bid to make a release stand out: human blood, helium balloons, latex masks, switchblades, chess sets, pizza boxes, musk

Over the next 15 pages we highlight – in no particular order – the best of the best.
