About Beach Catalogue

This limited edition archival inkjet print features the album cover images from Slip Stitch and Pass by Phish, Chrome by Catherine Wheel, Programme the Dead, On Air by Alan Parsons, Lovedrive by Scorpians and, of course, Pink Floyd feature here with their best of album, Echoes. The Back Catalogue concept was born when Storm was asked to design a campaign image to advertise the back catalogue of Pink Floyd and, as he recalled "Our resident black-frocked artiste, Finlay Cowan suggested humorously that we put Pink Floyd covers on the backs of female models. We decided to body paint the covers, rather than projection or compositing, which allows the contours to follow the attractive curves of the female models. In addition they would have course have to be unclothed, thus appealing to the testosterone levels. In order to display their backs more gracefully, they needed to sit somewhere, and the edge of a swimming pool seemed very natural." The original Pink Floyd Back Catalogue edition has now completely sold out on the primary market, and the subsequent images in this mini-genre have also proven very popular with Storm collectors. Beach Catalogue takes the line-up from the pool to the coast, and makes for another very attractive artwork, printed on a Somerset Enhanced paper by Coriander Studios, London.
