Elvis Costello


Elvis Costello (born Declan Patrick MacManus on 25 August 1954 in London) is an English singer-songwriter of Irish descent.

In 1977, he was invited to perform on the American television show “Saturday Night Live”. However, shortly before his performance, Costello decided to change his song at the last minute. Instead of playing his planned song, “Less Than Zero”, he started playing “Radio Radio”, a song that was openly critical of the music industry and the mass media. The show’s producers quickly realised that the song was controversial and tried to stop it, but Costello continued to play despite their protests.

This action led to Costello being banned from “Saturday Night Live” for several years, but it was also seen as an act of artistic defiance that reinforced Costello’s reputation as an independent and rebellious artist. The incident has since become legendary in the history of American music and television, and has been cited as an example of Costello’s commitment to artistic integrity and free speech.

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.
