When it comes to stylised artwork that has pop culture at its core, Liverpool based design studio, Dorothy, are one of our go-to brands here at Coolector HQ and it’s awesome work like these excellent looking Stamp Album Prints that we’re always coming back. Boasting the same distinctive design style we’ve come to expect from the studio, the Dorothy Stamp Album Prints use various iconic brands and give them a design overhaul to resemble stamps.
The Dorothy Stamp Album Prints come in two different varieties – namely, a psychedelic style print and an electronic music style print – and they both use iconic bands to serve as the design inspiration for the stamp aesthetics. Priced at £35, these prints will serve as the ideal addition to any design and music loving individual’s workspace and we’re loving the bold, colourful visuals on offer with these top class prints here at Coolector HQ.
With the psychedelic print celebrating the best (and most-mind bendingly superb) psychedelic albums of the last 50 years, Dorothy have reimagined 42 seminal psychedelic albums as a series of oversized postage stamps with their purview beginning in 1966 with The Beatles’ game-changing album Revolver. The print also boasts 41 other psych classics including 13th Floor Elevators and The Psychedelic Sounds of the 13th Floor Elevators, The Jimi Hendrix Experience and Are You Experienced, Pink Floyd and The Piper at the Gates of Dawn, The Beach Boys and Smiley Smile, LOVE and Forever Changes, Grateful Dead and Anthem of the Sun.
The Electronic Album Stamp Print from Dorothy begins with the 1968 groundbreaking eponymous album by Silver Apples and also features other classics which includes Kraftwerk and their 1974 album Autobahn, Brian Eno and Ambient 1: Music for Airports, Gary Numan and The Pleasure Principle, The Human League and Dare, New Order and Power, Corruption and Lies, Depeche Mode and Violator, Massive Attack and Blue Lines, Aphex Twin and Selected Ambient Workds 85-92, Portishead and Dummy, The Chemical Brothers and Exit Planet Dust, Daft Punk and Homework.
Each one of these Dorothy Stamp Album Prints features a graphic which has taken its design inspiration from the album (or tracks on the album) that it is based on, the date of release, the label it was released on and its running time. Dorothy have even gone so far as to create their own Spotify playlists based upon the albums and tracks which are featured on these first class prints. The bold visuals of these prints will really bring a workspace to life and if you’re a fan of the artists involved, it’s hard not to want this print hanging on your wall.
Measuring 80 x 60cm, these Dorothy Stamp Album Prints are sizeable in nature and really will add a touch of old school cool to any wall you choose to hang them. Each one is printed on 120gsm KeayKolour Snow White uncoated paper that provides a tangible sense of quality to the touch and there are plenty of other prints available to buy from Dorothy if you’re wanted to create a feature walled filled with stylised, pop-culture inspired artwork.
We’ve featured the awesome designs and artwork of Dorothy on the pages of The Coolector a few times now and these Stamp Album Prints are certainly amongst our favourites from the studio to date. For anyone with a love of iconic music from the last few decades, these classy looking prints will ramp up the style of your workspace no end.
