    Basically it looks pretty sweet, with special artwork from our friend David Fleck.

    Moreover it comes in a high quality 100% sustainable cardboard wallet, printed with premium colour-rich non-toxic inks and sealed with non-toxic varnish.
    It's even a carbon neutral product, via co2Balance, so is all round rather happily environmentally-friendly.
