I was reading through this tour programme a few days ago, and I realized I really like this: it is quite simple, lots of pictures.

I agree! Also nice are the neo-psychedelic vibe of the mid-90s, the earth plates moving at the bottom of each page, the text written in silver ink (not obvious from the scans, of course), and the embossed letters on the cover in the same typeface as the title of the animated film Yellow Submarine (see? psychedelic all the way!).

Yes! Psychedelic indeed. It also resembles the 1997 official website a bit, probably the same design bureau.

Ah yes, the "Room" of 1997, which got a revamp in 1998. Yes, probably the same design team. Probably with ArKaos too, as their software was used during the 1997 tour and likely for the background images of the tour program. Great show too, by the way.

The “Complete Oxygene” double-CD set used the same design language and typography. I do like that font (I hadn't made the psychedelic connection before!) and it was used in the box-set inlay cards. It works nicely as a title font but it’s really difficult to read when used for the main copy :shock:

Very good point! I had forgotten about that Complete Oxygène set... Thanks for the reminder! I've just checked, and bingo! same design team as for the tour program: something called Sin House Projects. Cool photos from the Moscow concert and same quotes spread throughout the booklet, but not in silver ink this time. And yes, the "Yellow Submarine" typeface for the body text is super hard to read. I remember taking a picture of the pages and reading the photos zoomed in rather than the actual booklet!
