Grammy award-winning art director Rachel Gutek has continued her stunning design work seen on 'Move', 'Shazam', 'Flowers In The Rain' & 'Looking On' & created a beautifully packaged boxset that houses a wealth of Move treasures: 72-page full-colour booklet containing rare & previously unseen photos, memorabilia & original press articles; double-sided Move poster featuring the Wayne-Wood-Bevan-Burton-Kefford line-up from 1967 & the Wood-Lynne-Bevan-Price line-up from 1970 (initial copies only); five facsimile Move biog cards from 1967 (initial copies only).
