- The individual CDs come in a cardboard slipcase
- with the original coverart and are alle housed in a cardboard case that is open to the side.
- The cover design of this series follows the ever same example:
- a format-wide photo of the band/artist surrounded with a white frame is horizontally crossed
- by an information section sized around one third of the picture and often on the background
- of a coloured transparent bar gives the band name, the Original Album Series name and
- below some miniature pictures of the albums included in the compilation in chronological
- order of release. The location of this info section can vary vertically, but mostly leaves
- a smaller part of the photo visible below that section than above.
- The back of the box set repeats that information section in the upper third of the format.
- Here, however, a black background within a white frame is used in place of the photo listing
- the albums and their tracklists as well as some additional information on the production.
- The album titles are printed in red, while all other information comes in white print.
