Simon Larbalestier

Simon's work is perhaps recognizable to most as the art used by the late 80s/early 90s music group 'The Pixies' for their album covers. His work has been shown in galleries and magazines the world over. We feel the work speaks for itself.

Early Original Works

Simon Larbalestier Original Handmade Exhibition Prints

Simon Larbalestier New Print Editions

Simon Larbalestier - New Editions.

Classic Images from the Pixies' Albums and Other Works including the new work 'Minotaur'

Print editions digitally remastered and lab-printed from original negatives.

We have been working very hard with Simon to digitally archive and reprint his original works with the latest in digital hybrid technology.  This way we are able to get the best of both worlds - while the prints don't quite have the quiet intimacy of the silver gelatin handmade prints - they are just as crisp and sharp as the originals and are available in much larger sizes where required.  A fantastic solution for the fan of his work who doesn't have the resources to collect the originals.

Simon Larbalestier - The Minotaur Prints

Simon Larbalestier minotaur

The Web Folio - This is a special preview of the Minotaur book starting production soon (not to be confused with anything available from the 'Pixies Minotaur'). Think of it as a 'director's cut'!
