I am looking for very hi-res machina 2 artwork. I am looking for scans of ALL artwork for the original vinyl releases (this includes the front cover, BACK COVER, and inside panels...EVERYTHING) Also, the labels on the vinyls. I searched on google, but couldn't find anything. Does anyone know of a fansite or have these themselves? Thanks!

Actually, what I'm trying to do is make a cool cd bootleg. I bought black cd-rs (even where a cd is usually silver, these are black) so they look like little records. Then I'm gonna burn it as a 4 disc set (1 disc for EACH EP, and one for the LP). Then I want to put them in jewel cases (slimline for the EPs) that has ALL the artwork from the original. I'm even making cd labels that are just black with the little CR0X tags. So I'm making 1 set for me. I bought enough stuff to make 10 sets. And I intend to make the 10 sets and give away the other 9 on here and on the ZOMB, as the result of some contest I can create.

ps- Wasn't the LP actually on 2 records? If so, I may make it a double cd in a double cd case.
pss- anyway, any help would be appreciated. For instance, was the back cover of the LP a repeat of the front cover? Or was it solid black? Solid white?

Cool. I have found some that are of relatively good quality. But I still need info on what the back covers, etc. look like. I want this to be hardcore accurate. I am making one for myself, and I already have a few friends that want me to make them one. So that would leave me like 6 to give away in the contest. Please help.

Infinite Pictures has some good quality images. They're not very high resolution, but they're the best I've come across.

http://www.my-mistake.net/infinitepics/thumbnails/art/tnart.htm

Scroll down to the Machina II section to find the images.

I guess maybe this site could be of some help:

Ok,
1. how sure are you the fronts and backs were the same? (and were they EXACTLY the same, or just VERY similar...do we have scans of each?)

2. What is a "sleeve" the EPs were in...like a paper sleeve? And also did these sleeves have the same picture on front and back (for each one of course)?

3. In the pics you display of the left and right inside of the LP, is that black border AROUND the inmage, or is that how it was printed for the packaging?

ps- Was the LP split onto 2 discs? if so, where did it split?

I have done some research and I consider the q101 edition to be the most high-quality representation of what the actual vinyls would sound like. So I am gonna use that version. So that would make it seem that if you win the contest you would just be getting a copy of the q101 package that THEY released. But mine is different. Their artwork used machina 2 art but was remixed and had track list and all. My edition is as much like the vinyl release as possible. No album names, no tracklist, etc. One cd per vinyl disc. And My cds are black (even on the read-side) sorta like a record.

These would be good, but the bottom appears to be the standard silver. I am choosing the black cdr's- black on both sides is the look I'm going for.

Ok,
1. were they EXACTLY the same, or just VERY similar

pic have been posted of fronts and backs.
not exactly the same
but the same repeating patterns
(also seen on Jay Leno)

2. What is a "sleeve" the EPs were in...like a paper sleeve? And also did these sleeves have the same picture on front and back (for each one of course)?not sure how else to explain it.... cardboard sleeve, joint on 3 sides, 4th side open slot to let the record slide in (have you ever seen a record?)
the LP was a gatefold http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gatefold (a record in each sleeve)
similar repeating pattern once again


3. In the pics you display of the left and right inside of the LP, is that black border AROUND the image, or is that how it was printed for the packaging?the black border is part of the LP artwork, all crooked


ps- Was the LP split onto 2 discs? if so, where did it split?

I researched this technology. I have seen reports that they skip in some types of cd players, especially car cd players. No thanks. Black CDs it is.

That's a warp from the inside outwards. It's just a photograph. The set in the snapshot doesn't have the luxury of being flattened on a scanner bed.

Like I heard... spfc guy got a copy. Anyone here I could interview about it? I've held this in my hands, but pretty much anything I could tell you has already been covered in this thread. The acetates felt very thin and fragile, which seemed weird to me, as I had never seen an acetate prior to that.
