SIOUXSIE & THE BANSHEES Hong Kong Garden (Super rare 1978 vintage original UK promotional silk-screened poster, measuring 31″ x 26″, for their debut single release on 18 August 1978, by Polydor Records. Hong Kong Garden was one of the most important of the early British Post-Punk hits, reaching number seven on the UK Singles Chart. According to Polydor Art Director Jill Mumford this original silk-screened poster is one of just 15 believed produced – this example has benefitted fromsympathetic professional restoration and preservation, being lined onto acid-free Japanese paper, a conservation method that restores and flattens worn folds and edge creases, preserving the delicate paper and stabilising the vulnerable edges, protecting them from further dints and damage. This stunning original example has had significant investment already spent in order to preserve it and is now ready for conservation framing and display. A rare opportunity…!).
JOY DIVISION Unknown Pleasures (Rare UK vintage souvenir poster measuring approximately 35″ x 25″, depicting the classic Peter Saville designed artwork. This example dates from the early 1980s and has been professionally restored with treatmentthat includes surface cleaning, tape stain removal, and lining onto linen and Japanese paper. It has not been retouched so the various areas of paper loss remain visible – the lining/backing has stabilised these edges and preserved them for posterity – it’s a classic vintage 35-year-old poster showing its age and looking all the better for it…!).
THE SELECTER Too Much Pressure (Fantastic 1980 UK vintage promotional-only large poster in black & white, printed in very limited quantities to help promote the release of their classic debut album on Two Tone. Measures roughly 38″ x 27″ & depicts a fabulously moody shot of the original seven-piece line up. Stored flat, the poster remains in Excellent condition showing signs of having been once displayed [tiny pin-hole in each corner] & has been treated with great care, exhibiting no signs of heavy creases or tearing. There are a few ever so faint spots of foxing to the corners & the two-tone design remains off white & strikingly vivid. Perfect for framing!).
