Our buyers recently acquired a very small batch of hand rendered sleeve artwork for the series of 3″ CD singles that were issued in 1988.
Each piece is set out with a tracing paper overlay showing the sleeve artwork and hand annotations detailing colour specifications, borders and backgrounds, over a flat plan layout of the sleeve with the reverse tracklisting and spine text.
Publishing credits differ to the final sleeve [omission of Queen Productions Ltd. credit] and annotations to the art show how they were to be revised, making these pieces truly ‘a work in progress’ at the time.
The pieces are mounted on to a thick card base complete with the original Artful Dodgers stickered grey paper front.
Each piece is unique and could be framed and displayed to best effect, absolutely one for the Queen archivist.
