Thornley

Catalogue No: THOR001ST Artist(s): Thornley Location: Burnham Beach, Weston Super Mare, UK Date: 2004 Era: The 2000's Edition: Storm Thorgerson 20/20 Edition Print type: Giclée Print Paper type: Archival 310gsm cotton based rag paper

Cover art for Thornley's 2004 debut album 'Come Again' designed by Storm Thorgerson and shot in Weston Super Mare, UK. Storm Thorgerson recalled 'We are not often inclined to do fantasy, preferring instead to mess around with reality (just a bit) I mean, you can’t really have a trap door in a beach, now can you? or stairs going down to the sky? except in fantasy land. Or unless you have ingested a large amount of pharmaceutical psychotropics, and heaven knows we wouldn’t want that. However, the elements are real enough and the trap door was custom-made and transported to a likely beach where we dug a hole in the sand and embedded said trap door, plus a couple of steps which were then computer-joined to some stone steps in a back alley in West Hampstead, London, and the same figure is seen at the top of the stairs (or is it the bottom?) as is seen walking away towards the dunes. I have no idea what it all means, but like much surreal fantasy it just felt engaging. Up? Down? Where do the stairs lead? Down into the earth or up into the sky? To darkness or to the light? Is it positive or is it negative? Is the figure coming or going? Is this a crock of shit or not?'

  • 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
