Palatine, originally uploaded by Kelvin Owers.

CD box-set produced near "the end" of the label's life.

Final factory logo features, set in "Factis" which is basically the Rotis font as created by Otl Aicher's team. The effect of the white box must have been intended to be a pretty faithful recreation of the dust jacket and card slip case of typographie. I think that's a pretty safe guess, and I'm sure Peter Saville will have had, or had access to, this edition of the book.
