Album cover for Bjork’s Volta.
Usually I like to show off album art that I really like or really captures the sonic aesthetics of an album. Not today.
Volta has what is likely the most hideous cover of any piece of music I own. It’s horrible on two levels: 1) It’s god-damn ugly. Terrifying color combinations + Bjork dressed as a bong are not a good thing. 2) It’s anti-functional. The Bjork-as-bong thing is actually a sticker that is supposed to hold the two orange flaps together. Which is clever, except the sticker is too sticky in some places (and thus ripped the cardboard cover) and not sticky enough in others (is curling up and generally looks cheap).
