Archive Annotations are a series of sporadic and incomplete anecdotes regarding past L-13 releases, oddities and rejects which are dug up from the vaults to be paraded about and subsequently DISPOSED OF via the archive section of the site shop.
Usually these are unique items, limited numbers from a long sold-out edition or unreleased experiments.
Once they are sold and their fate is sealed in a private collection these annotations will remain as reference to their existence.
Long before the ADP went off on tour in a 40ft container, shipping containers have featured in Jimmy’s work.
This CNPD First Day Cover would have been one of the first we released, and before we started sending them out with a defaced Royal Mail postage stamp. We always considered the FDCs to be the best thing that the CNPD issued with each one being addressed to its recipient & running the gauntlet of the postal service. Not many people caught on though, so I doubt we sold more that 30 of these. This is one of the archive copies we sent to ourselves. When we were on Woburn Walk as the aquarium we’d also change the gallery name for different shows. This one is addressed to the London Disorder Gallery.
Date of Issue: 27/09/2005
3 CNPD stamps stuck to a printed C5 envelope and stamped with CNPD rubber stamps
We’ve also dated the envelope 01 Oct 2009 but the frank mark is 27 Sept so it could be we sent this out to see if they went through the post OK.
Comes with a Certificate of Authenticity signed by Jimmy Cauty.
Only one available.
In excellent condition.
Sold as seen.
Check availability in the archive section of the L-13 shop. SOLD
