‘New England (Wishbone Ash)’ is Giclee print by art duo Storm Thorgerson & Aubrey Powell. From a limited edition of 90, the print is signed by Aubrey Powell.
Design duo Storm Thorgerson & Aubrey Powell - better known by their collective name Hipgnosis - are renowned in the music world for creating iconic cover art for rock and roll greats. From Pink Floyd to Paul McCartney, Hipgnosis have been behind some of the most well-know and well-loved album artworks, shaping the aesthetic of the music industry since the late 1960s. This new series of limited editions brings the images back to life as archival inkjet prints, each one in beautiful, never-before-seen, clarity.
‘New England (Wishbone Ash)’ is a reprint of the 1976 Wishbone Ash album of the same name. The black and white image shows a topless man - his face obscured - whittling a stick with a knife. Both the soft, photographic quality and the strangeness of subject lend the image a subtly surrealist undertone, which is striking, even beyond the musical context. A must have for the Wishbone Ash fan, the retro music collector, and anyone with a keen eye for the iconic.
