THE SMITHS Girlfriend In A Coma Withdrawn Artwork (Stunning 1985 UK unfolded uncut thick card printer proof for the front and reverse 12" vinyl single. This original design was a grey tint that was rejected by Morrissey and subsequently destroyedin favour of the now familiar green style. It is unlikely there were more than a few left in existence and comes complete with colour bar, registration and proofing bars and measures 64cm X 35cm. A great piece of unreleased artwork that would look truly stunning framed. An awesome item!).

Format: artwork

If ever there was a format that defied description then this surely is it, but we're big boys and girls so we'll try and explain it. Traditionally when we think of artwork we think of those lovely designed sleeves that package the all important music, be it LP, CD or DVD, but in collectable terms [which is where we know our beans] the format has various guises. We have proof Artwork which is usually the uncut, unfolded sleeve made by the designer or printer to check quality and clarity. These are recognisable by proofing & trim bars with colour reference charts and some even have overlaid tracing with hand written annotations held in mount boards. The next variation to cast our beady eyes over is original pieces of Art ranging from drawings and sketches [usually the result of absent minded doodles sat on a tour bus] right through to original paintings and limited edition prints. Other formats of note include lithographs, serigraphs and gelatin prints, all ranging from small designs right through to gallery size pieces. We have been fortunate enough [or clever enough] to have stocked some of the most amazing pieces imaginable, from hand done Lennon and Warhol drawings to Jerry Garcia original watercolours. When we say prepare to be amazed we really do mean it!!
