Don't worry, it was recycled...
In an interview with Mojo, Jack White revealed that the sleeve for The White Stripes' Elephant was actually made out of recycled elephant dung. Here are highlights:
On Elephant: "Did you know the British sleeve of Elephant was made out of recycled elephant dung? We forgot to tell people about that at the time."
On his attention to detail: "You really have to pay attention, all the time, to get the details right. It's important to me that the inner sleeve of Lazaretto is black rather than white. Most people wouldn't care."
On his critics: "Over the years people have said to me, ‘Oh you're a control freak, you have a huge ego,' and it used to hurt so much. Nobody ever says anything bad about [White Stripes drummer] Meg."
