The Mockingbird Foundation now
reveals here the eighth and final print in our soon-to-be-released
print series. Scroll down to see it in all its glory...
Foundation is excited to announce the upcoming release of a new,
8-piece art print series commissioned for our upcoming book, The
Phish Companion 3rd Edition (TPC3). These gorgeous hand-crafted art
prints, each with an edition size of 420, will go on sale via
the Bottleneck Gallery website on Thursday, August
6th. Full, matching-number sets of eight prints will go on sale at 12:00
noon ET, and will be priced at $400. Individual prints, priced at $50 each,
will go on sale at 1pm ET.
Companion by The Mockingbird Foundation is the definitive guide
to the band and its music. First published in 2000, the all-new Third
Edition is being self-published by the Foundation, with all proceeds
going to charity – youth music education. The
full-color TPC3 is chronologically organized, will be
complete through the end of Phish’s summer 2015 tour, and will go to
print shortly thereafter. The Mockingbird Foundation has commissioned eight
top rock artists to interpret and illustrate each of eight eras of the
band’s career, each of which will be presented as a two-page spread
in TPC3 and as a limited-edition (420 signed and
numbered copies) art print.
Print #8: TPC3
– Phish 1.0, 2012-2015
Long a fixture of the Phish
fan-artist scene, having created dozens of his spectacular hand-crafted
linocut prints, this is A.J.’s third print for The Mockingbird
Foundation and one of the most stunning in the TPC3 series. A.J.
is a fixture on the rock art scene known for his unique talent and
technique, and has made many official prints for bands like Umphrey’s
McGee, WSP, and Further, and recently he created a highly coveted triptych
for Trey’s Grateful
Dead side project. We could think of no better artist to represent
Phish’s current 3.1 era, where the band has truly hit their stride
and are taking us all to new heights, and of course A.J. has delivered.
This beautiful work features the mockingbird carrying the Helping Friendly
Book with the help of a giant tweezer, and is full of imagery inspired by
the magic of a rejuvenated Phish in their 30s. Set the vacuum to blow,
because there’s no sucking here!
Print #8 - Rainbow Foil Variant
