Peter Gabriel, So Album Cover, 1986

By Trevor Key
About the image
The front cover of So, the fifth studio album by  Peter Gabriel, released in 1986. Designer Peter Saville and master typographer Brett Wickens worked with photographer Trevor Key and Peter to develop something that was simple, fresh, black and white. Partly influenced by David Bailey’s work, it has since become a design classic. 

Release Notes:
This print is part of the Peter Gabriel : Album Art Collection, a series of 15 artworks featuring the album cover imagery from each of Peter Gabriel's solo releases from 1977 to 2010. Peter Gabriel produced this series as fine-art limited edition prints in 2010, coordinating with each of the artists who created the original artworks. Each one is signed by both the artist and Peter Gabriel himself and are available in two size options.

”I’ve always loved artwork and album art. I think it’s been a huge part of what people identify and feel about the music and the records” said Peter Gabriel “I used to love gatefold sleeves…when you would sit with a new record and open it up it was just a precious moment. Now we’ve gone into this digital world a lot of that has been lost. We’ve being looking at ways of getting quality prints of the artwork for a long time and I’m happy now it has happened.”

Collector's Notes:
Both sizes/editions have been hand-signed by both Peter Gabriel & Trever Key.
