With Chris’s flute and sax in the boot, we drove down to the Berkshire Downs around the Cottage to take pictures for the Evening Blue book. It was a family event. We were joined by Chris’s sister Steph and her husband Brian – along with Neil’s daughter, Polly. There were so many cameras and pictures being taken, we weren’t sure what we would be using them for – but you know the old saying “too many shots cost nothing, re-shoots cost thousands.” So we took hundreds.
We walked around the fields and hills and found this old wooden signpost, the perfect backdrop for a shiny sax, and then the thunder moved in… The picture was eventually used for the opening spread of one of the chapters “Vulcan” in the 200+ page monster-sized book.

*Giclée prints are a by-word for fine art prints and the preferred medium for museums and photographic galleries. Giclée prints are made in either a 10 or 12 colour process (as opposed to standard 4-colour CMYK). They are printed at 1200 dpi (magazines are generally 300 dpi) using Archival inks to create an image that has a richness of tone with a higher degree of accuracy than is available than any other reproduction technique. Since the inks are UV stable, Giclée prints will last a lifetime.
The Giclée prints offered within this enhanced edition will only be available during the pre-ordering period.
This poster edition is limited to a maximum of 33 only – with three artists proofs being created. Should this edition not reach its maximum take-up, the quantity pre-ordered will constitute the final edition number.
