This limited edition print was one of the very first selection of Pink Floyd album cover designs to be revisited and re-envisaged as an art print by Storm Thorgerson at the very beginning of this century.
It is a beautiful silkscreen reworking of the Wish You Were Here image that truly deserves to be seen on this scale.
Welcome To The Machine introduces Waters's fascination with pessimistic sci-fi views of the future. Wish You Were Here itself is a sad and wistful indictment of insecurity. Storm Thorgerson recalls that one theme, indeed one word, prevailed during the recording of the album at Abbey Road - absence. Nothing more poignantly, or powerfully illustrated this than the unexpected arrival of Syd Barrett at the studio during the vocal takes for Shine On You Crazy Diamond, having been absent for seven years. Storm told us,
The album itself is a favourite of David Gilmour's, with its haunting central theme of Shine On You Crazy Diamond is never far out of consciousness.
