Van Morrison


Sir George Ivan Morrison OBE, also known as Van – sometimes called “Van the Man” by his fans -, born in Belfast on 31 August 1945, is a Northern Irish singer and songwriter.

An interesting anecdote about Van Morrison dates back to the 1960s, when he was a member of the band Them. While on tour in the United States, the band was invited to play on the set of the TV show “Shindig!”, a popular show of the time. On the day of the shoot, Van Morrison refused to play, as he was unhappy with the sound equipment provided. Instead, he chose to sit backstage and watch the other artists perform. The show’s producer, Jack Good, was angered by this attitude and ordered Morrison to leave. However, Morrison refused to leave, claiming that he had a contract and would not leave until he was paid. Eventually, the members of Them were forced to leave, but Van Morrison’s unforgettable performance caught the attention of the crowd and made him an instant star in the US.

This anecdote shows Van Morrison’s attitude to music and his refusal to compromise on the quality of his sound. It also shows how even negative incidents can have a positive impact on a musical career.

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.
