"Wonderland" label motifs (Siouxsie & the Banshees)

From 1983 onwards Siouxsie & the Banshees formed their own label named Wonderland.
Actually it was a sublabel of Polygram and since that date almost every official S. & t.B release was on it. Wonderland's first release was the acclaimed S.& t. B. double live Lp "Nocturne".
Later, Siouxsie's, Budgie's and Severin's other related projects were also released via this label (the Glove, early Creatures).
Every Wonderland's offspring bore the code SHE+(serial no.) and a little decorative motif whose basic shape (two rectangles) remained almost identical but all details and design changed for every single release! 
Most of the times details would somehow be related to the title of the song or the album.
So each Wonderland release has it's own distinctive motif!
Graphic design was initially credited to Da Gamma, later to a certain Nigel Vichi & the Banshees.

See some of them below.
I'll try to display them all in due time.
