Album covers made with Japanese food

Japanese food is famously colorful, and people often pack creative, artful lunches for their kids and spouses. The Jacket Lunch Box blog belongs to a designer/DJ/food enthusiast who likes to make American album covers out of food. Here's a replica of Public Enemy's Muse Sick-N-Hour Mess Age, made of seaweed, fish cakes, sour plum, and rice.

Weezer's Green Album is made with cabbage, seaweed, ham, fish cakes, paprika, and rice.

  1. That’s pretty amazing that someone did that. You must be a big weezer fan. I guess I will give you props!

  2. 4: I have always been a fan of that cover. It is pretty intense made out of food – someone obviously worked really hard on it. Thanks for sharing!

  3. I have had a great love of the art of Japanese bento for quite a while. Some of the artfulness that goes into creating these meals is incredible, especially with the time that must go into them… just a quick search of flickr can pick up a few very pretty ones that people have made, including entire garden scenes created with coloured egg whites, snow-peas slithers of capsicum and more. The creativity for something which is going to be consumed not all that long after… well… presentation is everything!

  4. I guess this answers the age-old question of what album you’d like to have if stranded on a desert island. There’s nothing as effective as base appeals to the lower levels of the Maslovian pyramid through food to change priorities and restructure shopping lists.
