CD Packaging: 10 Optical Illusion CD Covers


Animal Collective: ‘ Merriweather Post Pavilion’ (2008)

No, it is not moving and yes your eyes are still fine. This is the cover image of Merriweather Post Pavilion, the 8th studio album of Animal Collective. The much-anticipated and now celebrated album boast trippy cover art inspired by the work of Japanese psychologist Akiyoshi Kitaoka.

Soulwax: ‘Any Minute Now’ (2004)

This Trevor Jackson design simply looks like white dots on a black mesh. Move away from your screen…and I mean, Awaaaaay (say 3 meters), and you’ll see a hot blonde. Just Kidding- how could you see blond on a black and white pattern? Hehe. Check it out yourself.

Soulwax: ‘Nite Versions’ (2005)

Same concept as the one above but this time, it’s a brunette ūüėČ

Black Lips- 20 Million Thousand (2009)

Okay, same concept as Soulwax’s but you’ll really see an image this time. (Aren’t you dizzy yet? I got a headache while making this post. Don’t worry, the ones below are not as straining to the eyes.)

Def Leppard: ‘Retro Active’ (1993)

Looks familiar because this is inspired from Charles Allan Gilbert‘s 1892 sketch ‘All Is Vanity’. Do you see a woman staring at the mirror or do you see a big skull?

Santana: ‘Santana’ (1969)

Looks like a hungry, angry lion at first glace but when you look closer, you’ll find a boy and a four human heads. Can you see all four heads?

Spiritualized: ‘Let It Come Down’ (2001)

What looks like a 3D image of a girls face  is actually a concave carving. Yep, concave as in inward.

The Heliocentrics: ‘Out There’ (2007)

Okay, so here’s another one that can make us dizzzzy.

Andrew Gold: ‘What’s Wrong With This Picture?’ (1976)

They say that there are 32 (yes, 32!) things wrong with this picture ‚Äď I’ve only seen 3 but I’m not even sure if they are included 0n the list.¬† All I can say is-nice job with marketing.

Traffic: ‘The Low Spark Of High Heeled Boys’ (1971)

Classic optical illusion. Which side is the front of the cuboid?
