Returning to the world of the lost novel it was decided to tackle the wonderful world of the 1979 film Quadrophenia. The novel released at the time doesn't really capture the essence of the film and so the decision was taken to to reimagine the novel how it should have been. Taking inspiration from Bruce Robertson's cover from the 1962 Scootering novel and mixing it with pop art a design was created which reflected the "four" personalities of Jimmy combining it with the accepted imaginary of mod culture. The limited edition print measures 30cm x 40cm and printed on 250 gram silk paper.
