Limited edition of 295
The Momentary Lapse of Reason limited edition print was one of the very first selection of Pink Floyd album cover designs to be revisited and re-envisaged as an art print by Storm Thorgerson at the very beginning of this century. The photograph was originally taken for the album cover of Pink Floyd's A Momentary Lapse of Reason, which hit the No.3 spot on Billboard in October 1987. The idea was to reflect the line of lyric "visions of an empty bed" by becoming one huge vision of many empty beds; hundreds of beds stretching across the landscape at the behest of master visionary, Storm Thorgerson. Storm wanted a particular kind of bed: Victorian, wrought iron, hospital type beds; beds for patients, beds for mad people, beds for dreamers. 700 of these beds in all were taken on two trucks to Saunton Sands in Devon, England, and put on the beach one by one, complete with bedding, and arranged in the shape of a river; a river bed. This is a 19 colour silkscreen on a Somerset tub paper printed by the renowned Coriander Studios, and a wonderful record of a legendary event.
