Queen – Freddie Mercury


Freddie Mercury’s iconic harlequin suit has become one of the most recognisable symbols of his career as the lead singer of Queen. The story behind the suit dates back to the 1975 ‘A Night at the Opera’ tour. Freddie Mercury had a very specific idea of what he wanted to wear on stage for this tour. He wanted a suit that was both extravagant and stylish, with bright colours and eye-catching patterns. In the end, he chose the harlequin suit, which was created for him by fashion designer Zandra Rhodes. The suit was first worn at the Queen concert at Earl’s Court in London in 1977, and quickly became a staple of Freddie Mercury’s performances. It was worn on many Queen tours, including the 1977-1978 News of the World tour and the 1980-1981 The Game tour.

An interesting anecdote about the suit is that Freddie Mercury had a superstition about it. He believed that the suit brought him luck, and that he couldn’t sing properly without wearing it. It was even said that he slept in the suit the night before some important concerts. Freddie Mercury’s harlequin suit is now one of the most iconic stage costumes in music history and has become synonymous with Freddie Mercury’s flamboyant and charismatic personality.

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.
