A Playlist in Pictures
David Bowie is a protean artist. His career spanned decades, musical eras and trends, and his music evolved while steering clear of fashions. His work is outstanding in many ways.
Although Olivier Jourdanet, Creative Director of the Pepper Only creative agency, is not a musician, David Bowie had a deep influence on him. Olivier chose to share his vision of the artist, and show how Bowie’s musical path inspired him, by means of his work as a designer.
An original visual arts collection
After many months of research, creation, and finally, production… Today, Hot Paper Éditions is proud to present you the result: a deluxe box set celebrating the artist through his work, his songs, and his metamorphoses. The set includes 15 original prints, each of them illustrating one of Bowie’s songs.
This limited edition of a thousand sets is shipped with a certificate of authenticity, numbered and signed by Olivier Jourdanet.
A hybrid object born from the digital age and a passion for the printed image
As a designer, Olivier is very sensitive to physical matter and the sensations it conveys. Therefore, he could not rely on digital techniques alone to create his prints.
This box set required the use of a vast array of printing craftsmanship skills, involving letterpress printing, ink blending (28 spot colors and 45 letterpress print runs), hot foil stamping, silk-screening and embossing. The prints created as a result, on fine Fedrigoni paper, will give you hours of joy as you discover the many details hidden within this unique work.
