You can personalise the content, shape and size of the artwork.
Typically a 90 x 90 cm artwork would includes the Spines of around 40 albums.
For the entry level price of £ 2,500 you would need to select 90% of the content from Keith’s existing Spines library and can make up the additional 10% with albums of your choice.
You can of course increase the self-selected content, and if you wanted to, you could choose 40 albums that were not in the existing Spines library and needed to be made from scratch by Keith. As you would expect, increasing the self-select element increases the cost—and the timescale.
As an example if you chose a 90 x 90cm artwork consisting of 100% self-selected content, the price would increase to £ 3,500. The mix of existing library content vs new self-selected content will determine the overall price, and we can give you a quote based on your specific selections.
These prices assume that where you are self-selecting, you have the records and will supply the sleeves to us for the project. You don’t need to supply sleeves for records in the library. Any sleeves you supply will be returned to you once Keith has used them for reference. If you need us to track down record sleeves for you we can do that and any sleeves would be yours to keep at the end of the project. This would add to the cost, but not significantly as most albums are readily available at low prices on the second-hand market.
Shapes and sizes
The maximum size for an artwork produced using this method is 180 cm x 122 cm (approximately 71 inches x 48 inches).
Any shape and size configuration within that total size is possible. So for example, you could choose a square layout with approximately 40 albums spines with a maximum size of 122 x 122 cm (approximately 48 x 48 inches).
If you wanted to use an entire 180x122cm sheet, you could do that – and that would require around 60 albums if presented horizontally.
A vertical presentation is also possible – and uses fewer albums.
Any combination of length and width within that overall 180 x 122 cm sheet size is possible. We can quote for the specific size that works for you. As an example, a huge 180 x 122cm artwork, presented horizontally and using a 90:10 ratio of library vs self-selected albums would cost £4,950.
The timing depends on content. For example a 90x90cm artwork with around 40 spines and a 90/10 mix would take approximately 3 weeks. A 90x90cm artwork with a 100% self select mix would take approximately 5 weeks.
