Is Vanity Fair's new cover the strangest thing you'll see all year?

Watching Vanity Fair embrace NFTs is like seeing your gran on OnlyFans, it's something that should never happen. Ever. Too harsh? Then take a look at the conservative pop culture magazine's latest NFT covers, which depict romantic, furry mouse-people embracing and a psychedelic smoking skull woman… Okay, I quite like this one.

When Madonna gave birth to a tree for her NFT collection I thought I'd seen everything, but Vanity Fair's new covers collection is just as disturbing. NFTs, or non-fungible tokens, enable artists to register their digital files on a blockchain, which we explain in our What are NFTs? feature. The technology is also leading to some very unusual digital art, leading to some believing NFTs are a new emerging art movement – something you may need to know when creating your first NFT.
