Smashing Pumpkins-inspired '1979' Art Print

I'd been stuck on '1979' for a long time, since it's one of my favourite Smashing Pumpkins songs, a feeling apparently shared by millions of other people. And the music video imagery was never far from my mind, it's just such a successful synaesthetic evocation of the song. When I eventually buckled down to concentrate on it, I looked for something that would cover the teenage experience of yesteryear (since that's the narrative that pulp covers offer, and also what the song is about). The more I considered this one, the more I liked it: by using a diptych panel, it covers the positive (flirting with the cute guy/girl, and all of the future promise that teases) and the negative (busted by the cops, and the threat of a ruined future that threatens). I also liked how the cop side could be supported by 'Shakedown', the first word of the song -- although almost any lyric from the song could be slotted in here perfectly.

So, if you're reading this far, you're either a fan, or shopping for one, and hoping for something with infinite cred that will cover you in shopping glory. Perhaps you've been plumbing the depths of the long tail of the internet, hoping for something to pop up and announce itself as the solution to all your worries.

Look no further.

I have everything you might need for the music fan in you, or in your life, to bask in glorious uniqueness. Using the power of intertextuality magnified by narrative congruence, you can choose between 5 increasingly large sizes of framed-and-ready-to-hang poster art prints, the same 5 sizes of equally ready-to-hang stretched canvas, the same 5 sizes of simple posters if you prefer to do your own framing, and even a customized speaker cover for the IKEA Sonos Symfonisk speaker (which you'll have to get independently, of course).

✔ Available in 4 formats:

  1. heavyweight paper poster
  2. framed and ready-to-hang
  3. stretched canvas (also ready-to-hang)
  4. cover for IKEA Symfonisk speaker (speaker not included)

✔ Free global shipping (32 countries)

✔ Made and shipped locally to you (no customs fees)

It is! We use a global fulfillment company that enables us to print at a printing company local to you, across 23 countries, and then shipped to you from there. It's fast, and all shipping costs are baked into the price you see here. It also means no import or customs fees.

If you need something expedited, then please message me before you buy - there are several super-fast shipping options available (up to overnight) with corresponding premiums.

There will be white borders around the image to facilitate framing, if you decided to frame or mount yourself. The left/right, vertical borders will almost always be thicker than the top/bottom, horizontal borders because of the dimensions of the source material (actual pulp paperback novel covers, or movie posters). I can't stretch the image to fill standard paper sizes without it looking, well, stretched - they look bad and believe me, you don't want that. Because every single poster uses a unique source image, no two images have the same dimensions.

We typically ship orders out within 2 - 3 business days of ordering. From there shipping may take an additional 3-5 business days; most of my customers receive their orders within 10 days of ordering, regardless of destination (yes, Perth, that includes you!).

Yes you can: in addition to the default black, frames are available in white, light wood/birch, and dark wood. Metal frames are also available. If you want a different colour or material for your frame, PLEASE CONTACT ME BEFORE BUYING since I need to intervene before your order gets automatically processed.

No, that's only on the website version to dissuade bootleggers from stealing my stuff. Your final product will be clean of any watermark.
