Chen vs Bak

February 20th, 2010

When I posted late last year about the Lolita cover contest I somehow failed to spot one of the very best entries. Happily, earlier today MeFi user nicwolff pointed out Justin Chen's entry.

I wouldn't quite go so far as to say that it's superior to the scrunchie, but it's certainly close.

The Scrunchie

October 12th, 2009

This unofficial Lolita cover contest attracted some fine work. Whilst I can appreciate the merits of the winning entry, I preferred the second-placed submission by Aleksander Bak, a.k.a. the scrunchie.

How many of these "Modernist Editions" of classic album covers can you identify?

I managed 11 out of 25: pretty poor, really.

Kinky.
