Important news for Kate Bush fans

Twelve months ago, we released a small number of original signed vintage Polaroids from Gered Mankowitz’s 1978/9 Kate Bush archives. These precious objects – completely unique items –  were very popular and sold quickly.

With Christmas approaching, I am delighted to be able to offer our clients the opportunity to acquire the remaining Polaroids in the archive.

These Polaroids were created in the studio on the days of Gered’s four famous sessions with Kate Bush in 1978 and 79. They were used to test a shoot set-up and lighting, and were particularly useful because they created an immediate visual reference that Gered could discuss with Kate Bush – who would have held and seen these actual Polaroids on those days in the studio in 1978 and 1979.

By their very nature they are complete one-offs—created as a single unique reference at a specific moment in time. The original polaroids themselves are really exquisite objects—tiny explosions of colour, albeit with an image area measuring just 2.25 x 2.25 inches / 6 x 6 cm.

Each one is signed on the reverse (there is no room on the front) and they are supplied already framed, so all you need to worry about is where to hang them.  We have framed them with a deep mount and a slim profile frame, which work together to draw you into the image, with overall dimensions of approximately 8 x 8.5 inches (20 x 21 cm). Perfect as single pieces for small spaces, they can equally be teamed up in clusters of two, three etc. A certificate of authenticity is mounted on the back of the frame.

So this is a chance to own something genuinely unique—something which no one else in the world can own.

Each piece is supplied framed and ready to hang, and there is no charge for delivery.

Please allow 3-4 weeks for framing, and factor that in if ordering as a Christmas gift.
