The Police – Henry Padovani


The Police are a British rock band from London, England. It was formed in the new wave and post-punk generation by Britons Sting on vocals and bass, Andy Summers on electric guitar and American Stewart Copeland on drums. Summers quickly replaced Frenchman Henry Padovani in 1977. The band was very popular in the late 1970s and early 1980s for their rock music, which mixed jazz, punk and reggae.

A funny anecdote about the Police is that their song “Every Breath You Take” is often misinterpreted as a romantic love song, when in fact it is a rather dark and obsessive song about surveillance and control. In fact, singer Sting explained that the song is actually a commentary on how modern society is constantly monitored and controlled, whether by governments, corporations or the media. He said that the song was “very sinister and very oppressive” and that it reflected his own sense of being “constantly watched”.

Despite this, ‘Every Breath You Take’ has become one of the band’s most popular songs, and is often played at weddings and other romantic events, showing how the original meaning of a song can be lost or misinterpreted over time.

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.
