Limited edition bonus DVD[edit]

The limited edition of Music Hole is packaged in a three panel, matte-finish, digipak with the same cover as the standard CD booklet, and housed in a glossy black slip-case, with a hole in the front large enough to show only Camille's face from the CD cover. When the digipak is removed, a small picture of Camille is also visible through the hole.

The bonus DVD, entitled Des Pieds Et Des Mains contains body percussion performances by Camille of the 11 tracks of the album proper, some of which contain vocals, vocalisation or percussive instruments; each performance ranging from 35 seconds to 81 seconds in length. The entire DVD is approximately 12 minutes in length. Whilst the packaging advertises the DVD as "The Documentary Des Pieds Et Des Mains", there are no interviews or classic documentary footage.

The limited edition also contains a 12 page CD booklet of photos and lyric excerpts; and a title strip (similar to an Obi strip) as the slip case does not have the title or song titles printed on it.
