Iconic Album Covers Made of Socks

Remember when half the fun of buying new music was checking out the album cover art? If certain songs serve as the soundtrack of your life, surely cover art serves as a sort of flipbook of your past.

Photographer Thom Moore recently paid homage to iconic album covers in a unique way on his Tumblr: He recreated the famous images with his socks. Bob Dylan’s checkered scarf on the cover of “Blonde on Blonde?” Moore’s version is made with crossword puzzle socks. The coiled snake on Metallica’s “The Black Album?” A pair of strategically positioned black cotton socks.

Whether you think Moore’s approach is blasphemous, reverential or just ridiculous fun, the images will surely evoke a few memories. Enjoy the rest of the covers here.
