retromania #2 : cassette business card




Retromania is an occasional series about "cassettes" as design artefacts or as photographed by other people. Number 2 in the series is a mixtape generation cassette business card and cassette case card holder by the creative, japanese designer, Kozzy. Looks rather nice. I'd love to have a set with my name on them.
