“Back 2 Back” by Pink Floyd Limited Edition Signed Print

  • Special offer
  • Regular price £595.00




This limited edition archival inket print is a unique reworking, undertaken by George Hardie, of his original album artwork for Led Zeppelin's eponymous album number I. Hardie first approached Led Zeppelin’s guitarist, Jimmy Page, with an idea for a design involving the airship icon. Jimmy then asked him to refer directly to a photograph that he had found showing the Hindenburg disaster and the design for Led Zeppelin I was born. What a design it is. So graphically striking yet subtly evocative; instantly recognisable from across the aisles of a record store, or the walls of a gallery. A truly enduring image. The print is taken from the original artwork that resulted from the original design project. The result is a print with added colour treatment applied by George in consultation with Brad Faine at Coriander Studios. The approach was made specially for this print edition and is quite different from the album cover image. It is a truly unique reworking of the original artwork by the artist. The edition was printed in archival pigment inks on a Somerset Satin paper by the esteemed Coriander Studios, London, UK. - See more at: https://www.hypergallery.com/led-zeppelin-i#sthash.GNlznUXW.dpuf

This limited edition silkscreen print features the cover images from Dark Side of the Moon, The Wall, Atom Heart Mother, Animals and Wish You Were Here painted onto the backs of five nudes. Storm was asked to design a campaign image to advertise the back catalogue of Pink Floyd and, as he recalled "Our resident black-frocked artiste, Finlay Cowan, suggested humorously that we put Pink Floyd covers on the backs of female models. We decided to body paint the covers, rather than projection or compositing, which allows the contours to follow the attractive curves of the female models. In addition they would have course have to be unclothed, thus appealing to the testosterone levels. In order to display their backs more gracefully, they needed to sit somewhere, and the edge of a swimming pool seemed very natural. The poses adopted by the girls seemed equally natural." As with the original shot for the cover of Pink Floyd's Back Catalogue, this print features the cover images from Dark Side of the Moon, The Wall, Atom Heart Mother, Atom Heart Mother and Wish You Were Here painted onto the backs of five nudes. Where Back Catalogue (which is no longer available on the primary market) saw the ladies perched in a line on the edge of a pool, here they are spaced throughout the composition. The chimneys of Battersea Power Station depicted in Animals are reflected in the water as they might be in the Thames. The renowned Coriander Studios in London printed the edition, using a Somerset tub paper.
