So Ed Levine lost a pound while on vacation (see previous post). Well, here's something to tempt him into gaining it back—Grace Jones made of chocolate. Creative Review magazine's CR Blog has the story behind the album cover for Hurricane, Jones's latest album after nearly 20 years:
"The original idea was to produce a set of images of Grace being mass-produced but with her being in control of the actual process," says [Tom] Hingston [whose Tom Hingston Studio created and art-directed the album artwork]. “The crux of the idea is that she has ownership of her identity. We looked at a range of manufacturing processes, from car makers to pottery factories, but there was something about her being made of chocolate that had [the right] connotations."
