well - a few
Pulse, Momentary Lapse and the division bell all seem to say reflect the 'out there' music inside

Division Bell: surely one of the great covers ever. The overall packaging is great with top art work throughout the booklet and the braille moulded into the side of the CD jewel case. Does the braille say "Pink Floyd"? Anyone know what it says?

You really looked up the braille and it really reads "Pink Floyd" on the Division Bell? Isn't braille quite complicated?

i'm not blind, so i'm not an expert - but the whole point is that it's simple - simplified versions of each letter

Division Bell is the one CD I would hate to have to replace the jewel case for in the event of damage/wear and tear because there is no way one cold get one with the unique braille design and whatever that other symbol is moulded onto the plastic stripe down the left-hand side. What is that part of a CD case called, by the way?
