Australian HIFI - - SOUNDBITES -

UK speaker designer Phil Ward, who has worked for Mor­daun­tShort, Canon Au­dio and Naim, has re­leased a limited-edi­tion se­ries of prints called Au­dio Icons, in­spired by clas­sic Bri­tish hi-fi prod­ucts from the 1970s and 1980s. Au­dio Icons kicked off with edi­tions il­lus­trat­ing six iconic am­pli­fiers and nine iconic speak­ers. Planned fu­ture edi­tions in­clude turnta­bles, a sec­ond col­lec­tion of speak­ers, a sec­ond col­lec­tion of am­pli­fiers, and com­plete hi-fi sys­tems. Edi­tions will be limited to 100 with each print signed and num­bered. ‘ The il­lus­tra­tions that com­prise Au­dio Icons are cre­ated by us­ing a va­ri­ety of dig­i­tal tech­niques and based on a com­bi­na­tion of per­sonal ex­pe­ri­ence, pho­to­graphic re­search and man­u­fac­turer’s data,’ said Ward. ‘ The il­lus­tra­tions por­tray each prod­uct as ac­cu­rately as pos­si­ble while at the same time cap­tur­ing their unique per­son­al­ity and the ex­tra­or­di­nary cre­ativ­ity, en­gi­neer­ing skill and en­thu­si­asm that went into each one.’ The 332×484mm (13” × 19”) prints are made on high-qual­ity 200gsm fine art pa­per and are sup­plied rolled and ready for fram­ing. Prints re­tail at £60 each in­clud­ing postage (in the UK and EU).
