That Lucky Old Sun by Brian Wilson & Peter Blake

Hand Signed by Brian Wilson and Peter Blake
Hardback Deluxe Edition - Limited to 1000 copies
New and Unread

That Lucky Old Sun is a co-signed book and original print set – a work of art that represents the culmination of many years creativity between one of the most influential composers of our time, Brian Wilson, and one of the world's most-loved Pop artists, Sir Peter Blake. Best described by Brian Wilson as 'a spiritual record', the book is accompanied by 12 original artworks. They are exclusively-created by Sir Peter Blake for Genesis collectors, as numbered fine art serigraphs.

The Artwork:
Bound in rich Italian cloth, the gilded case encloses 12 hand-pulled original prints, produced as numbered, fine art serigraphs and signed by the artist.

Created using vintage postcards, photographs, cuttings and other ephemera, Peter's collages are a celebration of Brian's life and Southern California: the rare artworks exclusive to those who reserve a copy from the limited edition. Hand screened with over 20 individual inks, Peter has retained an exceptional degree of involvement. From his selection of inks, to affect the transparency and palette of achievable colour, to his final glaze, each of Peter's serigraphs is in effect an original work, rather than a reproduction.

The Limited Edition:
The numbered book, hand-signed by Brian and Peter, includes illustrated new interviews with Brian and an essay by noted author Harvey Kubernik. Brian speaks at length about his life and work today, reflecting on his compositions and inspirations.The 12 new artworks are published as individual plates with a preface by Peter who describes the work in his own words.

The collection is safely preserved within a hand-crafted box, made in Italy and bound in two cloths - colours of which represent the hues of the Californian sky. The box is decoratively blocked in silver and gold foils with a portrait of Brian inset on the inside cover.

The edition would not be complete without one of the first CD pressings of the album, a copy of which is included in every boxed set. Also included is an original laminate VIP pass, saved from the first live performances of That Lucky Old Sun. It is attached by a ribbon, as a bookmark.

In design and finish That Lucky Old Sun is personally overseen and, as such, reflects the same spirit of invention for which Peter Blake and Brian Wilson are renowned.
