Dire Straits – Marc Knopfler


Mark Freuder Knopfler is a British singer, songwriter and guitarist born in Glasgow, Scotland, on 12 August 1949. He founded the band Dire Straits with his brother David in the summer of 1977, and has been pursuing a solo career since 1996. The name comes from the English expression “to be in dire straits”.

On 5 July 1981, Dire Straits closed the Werchter Festival.

Mark Knopfler’s band had already been known in Europe since the release of their first single in 1978, Sultans of Swing, but in 1980 they achieved worldwide status with their third album Making Movies, and songs like Romeo and Juliet and Tunnel of Love.

At that time, everyone loved Dire Straits, which is why they were top of the bill. The compositions, Knopfler’s virtuoso guitar playing, and the quality of the lyrics the basis of the band’s success.

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.
