Edinburgh Printmakers presents its world premiere exhibition of new work exploring record cover art, curated by Sarah-Manning Cordwell, Norman Shaw, and Edward Summerton and published by Edinburgh Printmakers. This exhibition will include original prints by eleven Scottish artists and a new LP of music by People Like Us, aka international award-winning multimedia artist Vicki Bennett.

Celebrating the vinyl record as an abiding audio-visual artefact, this project recalls the golden age of the record cover in the thick of post-psychedelia’s goth-surrealistic art-nouveau apocalyptic landscape explosion, now being revived in a current resurgence of collectable limited-edition records with original artwork.

People Like Us illuminates this dark visual ride with ‘This Is Light Music’, an exclusive full-length picture-disc album in a limited edition of only 250. This record is available as part of a lavish limited edition boxed-set publication which houses the record and a pull-out poster in a gatefold sleeve, and includes essays by People Like Us and co-curator Norman Shaw. This publication is on sale throughout the exhibition, together with specially commissioned t-shirts and badges by the participating artists.

“I have to say, I’m not very good at writing about myself or my stuff. Am I supposed to do it in the 3rd person? Who knows. Here’s a paragraph for you. Feel free to change it, reduce it, expand on it or ask me to come up with something else entirely. There’s no theory or deep thought gone into this mix, to be honest I was just happy to be doing my own thing for once so it’s just unadulterated nonsense really.” – Osymyso
