Preservation Music Poster Set

$44.00 USD

A set of nine original posters from Preservation Music
Design: Mark Gowing
Various sizes
2015 FE007
Edition: 10 sets

For over 15 years seminal label Preservation Music was dedicated to releasing diverse artists and styles from the frontiers of sound. Needless to say, this commitment to representing the best of the avant-garde extends to the CDs’ packaging material, which always strikes the right note.

The Preservation posters are the work of award-winning designer Mark Gowing, who designed the posters to double as innovative packaging solutions for the label’s titles of 2006 to 2009. Since then, Preservation’s cover art and posters have garnered local and international acclaim and awards, including a coveted Golden Bee at the 2010 Moscow International Biennale of Graphic Design. 

Featuring a variety of uncoated papers and special inks, these nine Preservation posters are now available, for the first time, as a collectable set. As highly sought-after pieces, they are fast becoming scarce, so let them be music to your eyes while you still can.
