The Rise and Fall of Paramount Records Volume I, won the Grammy® Award for Best Boxed or Special Limited-Edition Package in 2015.
The handcrafted wood box, based on the iconic Victrola VV-50, is constructed from quarter sawn oak over MDF for structural integrity and decorated with a molded escutcheon on top, featuring the Paramount eagle over an LP record.
The interior lid of the box is decorated with a water transfer of the Wisconsin Chair Company logo and a metal plaque displaying the player model number and sequential number of the unit.
All components in The Rise and Fall of Paramount Records Volume I were engineered to fit together seamlessly providing a multi-level unveiling as each component is removed.
The Rise and Fall of Paramount Records Volume I, is an epic, two-volume omnibus of art, words and music housed in a limited-edition, hand-sculpted wooden cabinet. This was a shared vision by Jack White of Third Man Records and Dean Blackwood from Revenant Records.
