2016 Grammy Winner: Best Boxed or Special Limited Edition Package
Via Third Man Records: The first volume in this collection was called “spectacular” (New York Times), “unprecedented” (Rolling Stone), “breathtaking” (Boing Boing), and “a cabinet of wonder, indeed” (Pitchfork).
On November 18, Third Man and Revenant proudly bring you The Rise & Fall of Paramount, Volume Two – already being hailed by Wired as “the ultimate box set of iconic American music.”
Six LPs, 800 digital tracks, two definitive large-format books. All housed in a polished aluminum case evoking the era’s high art deco stylings and America’s own Machine Age take on modernist design.
The Rise & Fall of Paramount Records, Vol. 1
2015 Grammy Winner: Best Boxed or Special Limited Edition Package
We were honored to help illustrate this stunning ode to Paramount Records–a Cabinet of Wonders honoring the best in early American jazz, blues, race, gospel and more. Via Third Man Records: “How did a Wisconsin chair company, producing records on the cheap and run by men with little knowledge of their audience or the music business, build one of the greatest musical rosters ever assembled under one roof? The answer lies in The Rise and Fall of Paramount Records 1917-1932, this epic, two-volume omnibus of art, words and music housed in a limited-edition, hand-sculpted cabinet-of-wonder, to be jointly released by Jack White’s Third Man Records and John Fahey’s Revenant Records. Volume One, covers the label’s improbable rise from 1917-1927.”

We worked with Crave Fishbar to create a custom undersea wallpaper mural. Located within their Upper West Side Manhattan location, the 25-foot wide illustration creates a playful nook to enjoy spot-on seafood.
As part of a special artist collaboration, we made our ice cream loving monkey from In the Bathhouse into a limited-edition iPhone case.

In May 2010, Katie Deedy’s wallpaper was featured in the storefront windows of Saks 5th Avenue’s NYC flagship. Half the building was dedicated to artists from MoMA PS1, and the other half to Grow House Grow. All photos courtesy Jacob Krupnick.
