That Lucky Old Sun by Brian Wilson & Peter Blake - Signed Edition
Hand Signed by Brian Wilson & Peter Blake to Numbered Signature Page
Hardback Limited Edition
New & Unread
Presented as limited edition book of only 1,000 numbered sets, That Lucky Old Sun is personally signed by both artists, Brian Wilson and Peter Blake and 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.
The Artwork - That Lucky Old Sun
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.
Peter Blake: 'This artwork is about Brian looking at somewhere like Venice Beach. It's Brian's California, which I'm very happy to make visual.'
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.
Peter explains, 'In some of Brian's earlier songs he was using sounds the same way. "Caroline, No", ends with the sound of a passing train and then a dog barking in the distance. It's very much a "sound collage" and this is a similar way of working.'
Midnight's Another Day Facsimile - For That Lucky Old Sun Brian's hand-written lyrics and sheet music to his new track 'Midnight's Another Day' are published in facsimile. The three prints are ready for framing and presented in a bespoke envelope. The song has, Brian says, 'a spiritual message: midnight is another day.'
About the Authors: Brian Wilson - That Lucky Old Sun was first performed at the Royal Festival Hall, London, in 2007. A year later it was developed in the studio. 'I wanted to put together a concept album,' Brian explains; and the result was hailed as a 'masterpiece' by The Times. This latest incarnation takes inspiration from Brian's original theme: a celebration of his life set against a moving tribute to his home state. Sir Peter Blake - Britain's pioneer of 'Pop Art', Peter is an elected member of the Royal Academy, an associate artist of The National Gallery and, in 2003, more than 40 years after his first solo exhibition, was knighted by Her Majesty The Queen. He has often said his figurative painting is the core of his work, the trunk of a tree whose branches include excursions into Pop Art, collage and printmaking.
