The Wildhearts Fishing For Luckies lenticular CD cover

Apropos of nothing…

My copy of “Fishing For Luckies” by The Wildhearts has a lenticular cover that flicks between two pictures. I decided to make an animated gif that alternates between the two to use as the cover art when I ripped it. Whether anything renders the animation is a different matter, but just so I never have to do it again, I’m recording the image here.


I scanned the inlay at 300dpi and then wrote some code to split the image into odd and even sets of (3-line-high) blocks, repeating each row twice. I then saved out the two images formed from the odd and even sets and used UnFREEz to make the animated gif.

Anyway, it’s a good album and you can buy it with the lenticular cover, or with a normal cover but with bonus disc, or ready-ripped but with some static cover art .
