FINE ART PRINTS are made direct from original artwork as either silkscreen or giclee. All fine art prints are strictly limited in number (the edition size), and signed and numbered by the artist, namely Storm Thorgerson. All fine art prints are printed on archival paper with long lasting inks. So long as they are kept in interior conditions and not left in the garden or direct sunlight, they are said to last (remain colour true) for a hundred years at least.
CIRCLE PRINTS It seems that circles are not hugely popular in the field of fine art but we don't know why.. Our series of circle prints explores the merit of a circular picture and comprises designs intended to be circular as well as those that suit being circular, including album covers, singles, labels, posters etc. as well as some designs that were rejected but we think are quite good.
BIG PRINTS Storm, not feeling that his ego was satisfied with his images 19" square on a print, he blew them up to 5ft squares. As he used to say, you might have to build a small extension to house them.
SILKSCREENS are produced in a traditional manner using mezzotint screens. Colours are applied one upon another to build up the image. Special colours, glazes, embossing and debossing are applied later via matts. Silkscreen prints tend to have a cachet and a quality that is slightly more painterly or “art-like.”
GICLEE fine art prints are the modern digital equivalent of silkscreen and are printed on a very large and sophisticated Epson machine using long lasting inks and special long lasting archival papers. Colour balance is finely tuned via Photoshop before test prints are made. Giclees tend to have a more photographic quality, but equally must not be left in direct sunlight or in the garden – they are said to last (remain colourfast) around a hundred years.
