‘Clip (Album) Art:’ Album Cover Art Recreated with Paper Clips

What makes a song iconic? Is it simply the lyrics and the tune? Or does it take more than that? Do the personalities of the band members matter? And how about the album cover art?

Perhaps believing that an album’s art and legacy are intertwined, designer and digital artist Eisen Bernard Bernardo takes famous album covers and recreates them with paper clips. Bernardo, who lives in Los Baños, Philippines, whimsically calls his series “Clip (Album) Art,” cleverly playing upon the idea of paper clips and digital clip art.

The concept came to fruition one day when Bernardo was bored at work. To pass the time, he started looking through his iTunes library and recreating the album art with actual paper clips from his office. After that, Bernardo turned to Photoshop and voilá, “Clip (Album) Art” became a reality.

Bernardo hopes his creations capture the essence of each album. Do you think they do?
