Released by Random House New York this week is Galadrielle Allman's poignant memoir of her father Duane, founder of the legendary 'Allman Brothers Band'. Further investigations revealed that before their band formed, Duane was 'FAME Studios', (located in Muscle Shoals, Alabama) primary session guitarist.. If you didn't catch the 'Muscle Shoals' documentary aired earlier this year you missed out on a historical musical feast. Its still available here though..
I created a third print, shown above, as a possible idea for the back of the jacket.. it wasn't employed by the end though, ; (
This aside it was a most enjoyable book jacket to work on.

This week I'm in the joyous position of having somebody else do the hard work for me, ; ) And it isn't just anyone.. I've admired the technical & creative prowess of Marco Lawrence from our first introduction at Print Club London last year. Since then I've been fortunate enough to collaborate with him, through them, on three separate occasions. Each subsequent time releases in me a higher technical appreciation & daring, ( I'm learning on the job yeah.. ) which I then somewhat phonetically relay to Marco. Poor guy! Today he is translating my creative whimperings in to a Pop themed poster for their forthcoming 'Blisters' show. I can't say what it is yet but it involves brassy gold, a magenta red through to deep blue fade & a whole lot of patience.. all will be revealed on September 12th at the 'Blisters Sound Sessions Show'.
