In Spines #3 Stones, Keith Haynes recreates the spines of fifty-one Rolling Stones albums. The starting point is Keith’s own record collection, which he supplements with missing albums he needs for the piece. These 12-inch sleeves are the source materials. Keith then researches all the historic fonts and uses these to recreate the spines himself to build up the artwork. This is not a photograph – it is a drawing that Keith makes from scratch, painstakingly recreating and combining each spine into the overall artwork.
There are two versions of Spines #3 Stones:a smaller version with a 50 x 50 cm image printed on 66 x 66 cm paper, which can be supplied framed or unframed. The second option is a larger 90 x 90 cm image size, face mounted in 90 x 90 cm perspex (in effect a frameless frame, with no border around the image) and supplied with a subframe ready to hang.
