Steven Demetre Georgiou, known as Cat Stevens, is a British singer, musician and songwriter born on 21 July 1948 in London. After achieving great success in the 1970s, he converted to the Muslim faith in December 1977 and took the name Yusuf Islam.

His famous hit “Wild World” was written for a former girlfriend who had decided to study abroad. Stevens has said in interviews that the song was written at a time when he was feeling very sad about the separation from his girlfriend. He had met her when they were both studying art in London. When she left for another country, he felt a great emptiness in his life and wrote “Wild World” to express his feelings.

The song became one of Cat Stevens’ biggest hits, reaching the top 20 in the US charts in 1971. It has been covered by many other artists over the years, including Jimmy Cliff, Mr. Big and Maxi Priest. Interestingly, although the song is considered a sad love song, Stevens later stated that he did not write the song to express sadness or anger towards his former girlfriend. Instead, he simply wanted to wish her well in her travels and future life.

Longevity of carbon pigment inks
Tests carried out in the USA, in the Wilhem research center, guarantee a longevity of 150 years if these inks are associated with acid-free papers, with the Hahnemühle or Canson paper ranges we work with.
On a more technical aspect, the carbon inks are encapsulated: it is coal dust mixed with a binder which allows to deposit it on the paper. No difference in density between the printer output and after drying. There is a slight evaporation of the binder which stabilizes the pigment on the coating. It remains then the coal dust, which will give the density and nuance of the black and white impression.
The inks are made from pure monochromatic pigments chosen for their resistance to light, available in seven progressive shades, from light gray to black. They are specially designed to reflect light back to the viewer’s eye and completely eliminate color anomalies such as metamerism (which changes color depending on the light source). The Piezography System, monochrome inks, provides a unique photographic look that includes depth and brilliance throughout the image surface.
The formula allows for a longevity that reaches record levels when printing on archival and fine art papers. The print quality is at least equal to the best silver baryta print, if not better.
