Benjamin Wilkerson Tousley, William J. O'Brien, Amelia Bauer — "Veckatimest" by Grizzly Bear
One of my own personal favorite album covers (and albums) from the past ten years has to be “Veckatimest” by Grizzly Bear. The cover really does a wonderful job at capturing the depth and texture of this album in a way that really has an impact on the way that the music is perceived. It’s layered, carefully complicated, and at the same time organic, just like the record itself.
The design direction was led by Benjamin Wilkerson Tousley, the artwork by William J. O’Brien, and the text hand-drawn by Amelia Bauer.
