4. Spiritualized: Ladies and Gentlemen We are Floating in Space (Special Edition)

The medicine-pack inspired packaging contained 12 separate mini-CDs (remember those?), one for each track. Each mini-disc popped out of a pill-style blister pack.

5. The Durutti Column: Return of the Durutti Column

The cover of this Factory Records release was entirely sandpaper, designed to scratch and destroy the album cover of whatever sat next to it on the shelf.

7. The Rolling Stones: Sticky Fingers

Designed by Andy Warhol, the cover featured a working zipper. The photo is not of Mick Jagger, as is often assumed, but of one of Warhol's models.

10. John Lennon and Yoko Ono: Wedding Album
