Depends who you get it from - your best bet is HMV or Fopp if you're UK-based, if not direct from Eureka. Amazon tend to send everything in thin card mailers these days, meaning some orders arrive crushed.

I can't help but imagine how much better these would look in colour. I do not think I have ever seen any colour promotional material for Sherlock Jr. that really captures the film, but I know the art for The General looks especially strong in colour.

I quite like the black and white, finding them quite striking. Are they Nick Wrigley's work?

Looks like Nick Wrigley, that's for sure. I assumed the black strip was a belly band but from the pics on Amazon it looks like it's more of a J-card/trough thing for it to sit in.

Love the artwork though. Perhaps they'll offer reversible artwork on each Amaray, a bit like Arrow's Marx Bros set? Have to say this is even more handsome than MoC's Keaton shorts set, and will go nicely next to it on my shelf. Can't wait for this one!

The problem with the Keaton shorts box is all the text tends to be misaligned on the outer hard box. It looks like the measurements were slightly off so when the printed cover was folded and stuck to the hard box, the text spills over to other faces. I've been through three or four boxes and all are like this.

It was all my design, but the bellyband was changed at the last minute without my consultation or notification – and it suffers from a number of problems – so this is not my package design anymore, unfortunately.

So the name of the set is "Buster Keaton: New 4K restorations"?

No, apparently it's "Buster Keaton: Three Films", but rather than write the words 'Three Films' instead it has the logos for each film - a little like Mr. Wrigley's designs for recent Indicator sets (Harryhausen).

You can see a pic of the actual box set without the card overlay thing here.
