M/M have done well to “out weird” the previous Bjork covers with this design for Volta. The sculpture by Bernhard Willhelm, a famous fashion designer, is a mix between a Russian Doll and a melted bag of Chuppa Chups.
Here’s a behind the scenes photo of the sculpture without Bjork inside.
It looks like the sculpture had to be held up with a chain. So we won’t be seeing this on the catwalk or live gig anytime soon.
The album is also available in a limited edition with special packaging check the promotional site created for the album for more info on this version.
The crazy crochet costumes created by The Icelandic Love Corporation. It’s something your grandma would knit on LSD.
I also found this paper craft version while researching this design. Get the templates here.
