Peter Gabriel Sells Artwork
Peter Gabriel has launched a series of limited-edition prints of his album artwork.
These are available through Real World Galleries. There are 15 pictures in all, covering 34 years of recording. Each is crafted using the finest Giclee printing methods (what ever they are) on to heavyweight Woodstock Felt paper (whatever that is), and signed in pencil by Gabriel and the artists involved.
“I’ve always loved artwork and album art. I think it’s been a huge part of what people identify and feel about the music and the records. I used to love gatefold sleeves… when you would sit with a new record and open it up it was just a precious moment.
“Now we’ve gone into this digital world a lot of that has been lost. We’ve being looking at ways of getting quality prints of the artwork for a long time and I’m happy now it has happened.”
For each cover, there are 100 prints which are 25½”x33½” (priced at £599) and 25 prints sized 40”x50” (£999).
For those of you who remember when old-fashioned albums cost just 12s 6d… well, that’s inflation for you.
