The Fall poster - 'This Nation's Saving Grace' album reimagined as Penguin Books

The Fall 'This Nation's Saving Grace' Album As Penguin Books Poster Print

Regular price £18.00 Sale

This poster print imagines how The Fall's great 1985 album 'This Nation's Saving Grace' might have turned out if Mark E. Smith and the rest of the group (as they were then) had been novelists instead of musicians: rather than an LP, it might have appeared as a collection of books instead.

Every book in this print corresponds to a track on the album, arranged in the order they appear on the original vinyl release. They're based on those wonderful classic Penguin, Pelican and Puffin paperbacks. The books, in track order, are: Mansion, Bombast, Barmy, What You Need, Spoilt Victorian Child, L.A., Gut Of The Quantifier, My New House, Paint Work, I Am Damo Suzuki, and To Nkroachment: Yarbles.
