Apart from being an Ipad app, with graphics from M/M French graphic studio, and in-app buying of each song/app, the new album of Björk is again an occasion to offer a new serie of portraits of her, this time shot by Ines van Lamsweerde & Vinoodh Matadin.
The vinyl edition has a different cover, built around the biophilia logo designed by M/M Paris.
An Ultimate Art Edition was also available (200 ex only) for a limited time, including, in a wooden box, the Biophilia manual (a 48 pages booklet with tipped lenticular panel on cover) and 10 chrome-plated tuning forks, in 10 different colors, with a stamp on the back, and each one being tuned to one of the 10 tracks of the album. Of course the package includes the album on cd.
The booklet, designed by M/M paris, includes an essay from nikki Dibben, and more graphics and images of Björk live performance of Biophilia in Manchester.
The App offers a classic "galaxy-like" interface, but makes extensive use of the typography designed for the album.
The singles are using pictures from the same serie, as seen below, except for the Crystalline Club remixes, offering close-up of the crystals.
