Music is what feelings sound like. It has the ability to not only freeze time, but to take you back to a time in your life. It can clear your head, heal your heart and lift your spirit. It's no surprise that music holds such a special place in peoples hearts and why so much is put on 'the first dance' and indeed funerals and other memorable occasions. It's also no wonder that vinyl records have been making a comeback over the last few years.
It may not surprise you to know that EasyFrame has been responsible for framing thousands of pieces of memorabilia. Though you might be unaware that, as huge fans of the eternally-popular ‘Only Fools and Horses’, EasyFrame’s owners have developed a very special relationship with the fan-club that services a nation’s perennial obsession with a legendary British comedy institution. In that capacity EasyFrame has framed endless signed collectibles and merchandise galore during the last 20 years.
Christmas and New Year are done and dusted. 12th night has come and gone (for anybody who is confused about this, it's always on 5th January). So the paper-chains, baubles and tinsel ought by rights to be back in the attic before their presence becomes an irritation. And yet, now all the fun is over, in the aftermath you may feel a bit deflated (except that, if you're like most people, your waistline won't be). But, wait, you've taken all of those photos over the break and some of them are really worth framing. Isn't this the time, then, to create an addendum to your New Year's Resolutions and get some of your best shots up on the walls before you lose them?
Warhol loved to exude an aura of mystery and reinvent himself. In this sense he doubtless inspired David Bowie to create seemingly-endless persona. Bowie apparently only met Warhol once but was a big fan, and both men worked with the 'Velvet Underground' frontman Lou Reed. There were other links. Bowie played the role of Warhol in the 1996 film 'Basquiat' directed by Julian Schnabel). And, of course, Bowie famously wrote 'Andy Warhol' (for his 1971 album 'Hunky Dory') which he even performed at 'The Factory' in Warhol's absence - though apparently Warhol was offended by the lyric 'Andy Warhol looks a scream' (interesting given that Andy's big brother once mistook a photo of Bowie for being his own brother!)
This article is about the German artist Albrecht Dürer (1471–1528), a contemporary of the Italian Niccolò Machiavelli (1469-1527) who was a diplomat, politician, historian, philosopher, writer, playwright and poet.
This article is about how great artists have celebrated Crimble, capturing for posterity their vision of events recounted in the Bible (many of which are, of course, corroborated by contemporaneous accounts).
Now, to round off the series, in 'Frame Academy XII' we are going to look at the chief options that should be available to customers if they go to a leading framers like EasyFrame.
It won't have escaped you that the Zanna brothers are pretty astute businessmen. And nobody would have blamed Nick if, wearing his commercial head, he made a beeline for a fan-club that services a nation's perennial obsession with a legendary British comedy institution. Surely the 'Only Fools and Horses' fan-club would have signed memorabilia and merchandise galore to frame? Yet the relationship between the Zanna brothers and their Trotter counterparts is almost accidental, enduring, more to do with an understandable obsession than profitability, and worth recounting.
