It’s official. In an era where music leaks like busted rain gutters, Jay-Z and Kanye West’s Watch the Throne has moved 400,000-500,000 units of the tried and true product in its first week. Almost as unmistakable as the album’s glossy grit and poison-tongued delivery is the the artwork that accompanies the hip-hop collaboration. The gold-leaf cover from Riccardo Tisci, creative director of Givenchy, led the fray of original creative direction with polished yet decadent pizazz. Now check out the rest of Tisci’s original designs, including the floral source work for the album’s iconic cover.
