David Bowie

Catalogue No: DB001DAHO Artist(s): David Bowie Location: Savoy Hotel, London Date: 1983 Era: The 1980's Edition: Rockarchive Edition 200 Print type: Silk screen Paper type: Archival 310gsm cotton based rag paper

David Bowie at press conference for his single 'Lets Dance' at the Savoy Hotel in London. Let's Dance was the fifteenth studio album by Bowie. Co-produced by Chic's Nile Rodgers, the album contained three of his most successful singles; the title track, "Let's Dance", which reached No. 1 in the UK, US and various other countries, as well as "Modern Love" and "China Girl", which both reached No. 2 in the UK. Let's Dance was nominated for the Album of the Year Grammy Award in 1984 but lost to Michael Jackson's Thriller. Bowie had decided to do only one extensive interview for the album – with veteran English music writer Charles Shaar Murray, who awaited him in the Savoy.

  • Print type

    A screen is made of a piece of porous, finely woven fabric (originally silk, but typically made of polyester since the 1940s) stretched over a frame of aluminum or wood. Areas of the screen are blocked off with a non-permeable material to form a stencil, which is a negative of the image to be printed; that is, the open spaces are where the ink will appear.

    The screen is placed atop a substrate such as papyrus or fabric. Ink is placed on top of the screen, and a fill bar (also known as a flood bar) is used to fill the mesh openings with ink. The operator begins with the fill bar at the rear of the screen and behind a reservoir of ink. The operator lifts the screen to prevent contact with the substrate and then using a slight amount of downward force pulls the fill bar to the front of the screen. This effectively fills the mesh openings with ink and moves the ink reservoir to the front of the screen. The operator then uses a squeegee (rubber blade) to move the mesh down to the substrate and pushes the squeegee to the rear of the screen.

    The ink that is in the mesh opening is transferred by capillary action to the substrate in a controlled and prescribed amount, i.e. the wet ink deposit is equal to the thickness of the stencil. As the squeegee moves toward the rear of the screen the tension of the mesh pulls the mesh up away from the substrate leaving the ink upon the substrate surface.

    Paper type

  • Delivery

    Delivery charges are added during the checkout process and calculated on a 'by country' basis.

    We aim to dispatch all our prints as soon as possible. If we have the requested print in stock we will arrange to post within a few days. However, in some cases we may require a photographer to sign or send us a print, it will take a little longer to be delivered. In these instances we will notify the customer of when they are likely to receive a print.

    It you have any queries regarding delivery charges or need a print delivered by a specific date, please let us know and we will do our best to sort this out.

  • VAT

    VAT (Value Added Tax) is a tax added to prints and other goods that are delivered to the UK & the rest of the European Union (EU). On our website prices that include the cost of VAT read 'Price inc VAT'

    Prints delivered to countries outside of the EU eg USA, Canada, Japan, Austrailia etc do not have VAT charged to them. So in these cases the price charged will be the one that reads 'Price ex VAT'.

    The current UK rate of VAT is 20%. Import charges may apply to orders delivered outside of the EU. Books are exempt from being charged VAT.

    If you have any queries regading VAT please email info@rockarchive.com

  • Framing

    A great print deserves a great frame. At Rockarchive we would be delighted to advise you on how best to select the right frame for your print. Please just let us know when you place your order or contact us once you have received your print and we will discuss the various options with you.

    If you live in London we can arrange to get your print framed for you. Once the print is framed you can either collect it from our London Rockarchive Studio, in Kentish Town or we can arrange for it to be delivered to your London address (at an extra charge).

    If you live elsewhere in the UK, we can arrange to get smaller sized prints framed and shipped to you. However due to postage regulations acrylic (eg perspex) rather than glass needs to be used in the frame.

    If you live outside of the UK, we are sorry we are unable to ship framed prints to you.

    For all framing enquiries please contact us at info@rockarchive.com or call us on +44 (0) 20 7267 4716
