I've always shelved them like Captveg, with the opening facing outward. I do the same thing with box sets for accessibility purposes, and I figure this way everything is consistent.

For you outward-slipcoverers, do you shelve your box sets the same way?

Do you shelve your books with the spine inwards too?

If you're gonna use the book comparison, then doesn't the filing style both myself and captveg use make even more sense? The "spine" of the digipak would be the spine of the disc-holding case (since it folds open like a book), which, when filed our way, is facing outward (just like a book)!

Please stop trying to normalize this behavior.

This might be the greatest discussion in the history of the forum.

What do you do with French blus/dvds, where the title is "upside down" relative to English-speaking discs? Do you line them up as is or do you shelve the French discs upside down so all your titles can be read going in the same direction? (I do the latter.)

That is odd. Criterion posted a pic the dvd set and it doesn't have 1966 on it

Maybe since there was only one disc they didn't want all that empty space. I don't know off hand if other one disc blu rays that have 2 disc DVD counterparts warrant that design choice though.

Line them up as is. I find bottom to top spines more logical as if the item is face-down, the spine can be easily ready. If face up, you don't need the spine anyway.

If you have multiple releases piled together, surely, you would need the spine to know which is which for all of them except for the one at the very top ?

It looks like the digipak for Blow-Up is not as thick as the Dekalog one. Is the booklet inside relatively thick?

I think the new one works much better in relation to the rest of the composition. Plus it would be easier to read from a distance. I wish they played a bit more with the kerning of it though.

Love They Live By Night and the Fanny Trilogy. Lodger's pretty good. Straw Dogs is ruined. Ugetsu: still boring

I pretty much echo Domino's sentiments (although I've always liked the Ugetsu cover and am glad they didn't change it). The shocking power of the Straw Dogs image has been completely neutered by turning it into a painting -- an annoying trend Criterion is continuing from The Innocents and Eraserhead -- and colorizing it to boot.
