The Kitten Covers, a creation of artist Alfra Martini, gives an awesome selection of classic album covers—reimagined with kittens (go to the site for moar). Here are my favorites:
I love the Garfunkel cat, so true to the original album:
Obviously music is a great passion. We’ve got thousands of vinyl records in our collection here at the AHE house in Gowanus, Brooklyn, and of course, we have a little kitty named Lois, whom we rescued from the street. I also have a huge rock poster collection, because I’ve always been fascinated by rock n’ roll iconography. It can be at the same time so freakin’ hip and so silly! With kittens in the mix, well, it just amplifies this dichotomy, wouldn’t you say? Anyhow, The Kitten Covers just happened one day when staying home while recuperating from a cold. I’ve worked both in graphics and in vintage poster restoration, so I’m a freak about details. And since I have very little free time, I’ve learned to work fast. I was hoping to make some friends laugh but had no idea how popular The Kitten Covers would become. I’ve seen other “alternative cover” concepts done with tacos and legos, but frankly, I’m a little surprised no one’s done kitties before. After seeing the finished products, they just seem so … inevitable, no?
