This is the Original Master Production Artwork for the 1993 album Cover for Both Sides of the story by Phil Collins. This historic piece of artwork released 28 years ago is in excellent condition.
The art department that created this for Phil Collins produced it on 4 separate Art-boards which have been taped together.The artwork shows the front cover of the CD sleeve, the artwork for the disc, the artwork for the inner booklet.
On the main picture, there is a very interesting handwritten production note on the artwork overlay explaining that the ‘unsmiling’ face of Phil Collins should be used for the CD & Cassette versions of the album release. It goes on to explain how eyes should also be altered.
There are handwritten amendments to be made to the artwork on the overlays as well as added page numbers in pen. Bars codes have not been added at this stage indicating it is a very early piece of artwork for the album.
This seminal album, that Phil explained was in his opinion, his greatest work, was released on Virgin catalogue number CDV2800 7243 8 3923229
It was released 28 years ago and is on the original art-board. It includes all paste-ups and Photo mechanical transfers. It is likely that there was an overlay on this artwork as the track lengths that are shown are not on the artwork and may well have been on the overlay with production notes for the printer.
The artwork measures approx. 30×20 inches in total but is larger in the frame.
Production artwork is the rarest of all media and in the modern digital world these artworks no longer exist. It is the origin of all subsequent proofs and ultimately the finished product. The design would likely be altered before production making these versions rare and unreleased.
Pop Nouveau Gallery have thoroughly examined the artwork and are in no doubt over its authenticity. It was created at Hills Archer Studios of London.
