Frank Zappa


Frank Vincent Zappa, born December 21, 1940 in Baltimore and died December 4, 1993 in Los Angeles, was an American composer, musician, guitarist, filmmaker, producer and satirist.

When Frank Zappa was invited to perform on national television on the variety show “The Steve Allen Show”. During his performance, Frank Zappa played a musical composition entitled “The Chrome Plated Megaphone of Destiny”, which involved the use of a megaphone to create strange and discordant sounds. At one point, Steve Allen, who was sitting next to him, asked Zappa, “What are you trying to prove with this kind of music? Without hesitation, Zappa replied, “I’m trying to prove that people like you have no imagination.

This answer baffled Steve Allen and the audience, but it also illustrated Zappa’s defiant attitude towards the cultural establishment of his time, and his confidence in his own creativity and originality.

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.
