    Swedish country singer David Ritschard's second album released on LP and as a limited edition version. The album title Blåbärskungen translates to “the king of blueberries” in Swedish. Artwork concept centers around a custom-made screen printed collectors plate with the artist portrait surrounded by a blueberry garland and the album title set in Weiss.

    The inner sleeve and label are printed in blue monotone. The main text is set in Kennerley and information details in Helvetica. All the contributing musicians were scattered like blueberries between the lyrics.

    The limited edition of the album comes in a handmade box from Norrmalms kartongfabrik in Stockholm with the title hot foiled in gold on the lid. It includes a numbered collectors plate, the album on LP, a piece of string and a note from the artist. 50 boxes were made.
