New Day limited edition giclèe art print
Matthews’ first official record cover commission: Thin Lizzy’s 'New Day' EP. He discussed the design with Phil Lynott, Brian Downey and Eric Bell over a pint at The White Harte, Park Row, Bristol. Matthews is credited on the sleeve as “Hairy Rodney from Bristol”.
Only 10 prints are available in this limited edition, signed and numbered by Rodney. Each print has been triple-mounted (as shown) and will come with a certificate of authenticity, also signed and dated by Rodney Matthews.
To make this edition even more unique, numbers 1 to 5 feature an original piece of art - a pencil remarque inspired by Matthews' original drawings that appeared on the inner gatefold of the EP:
Number 1: Phil Lynott (as shown) - SOLD
Number 2: Brian Downey
Number 3: Eric Bell
Number 4: Policeman with notebook
Number 5: Moses-like character.
