Spellbound Publications is proud to present a beautifully produced portfolio box set containing 10 signed limited edition photographs of Oasis’ iconic album & singles cover artwork; included in the box set is a limited edition book of previously unseen photographs of Oasis, as you’ve never seen them before!

Unlike most bands of their stature, Oasis seemed to burst onto the music scene 'fully formed'. This, of course, was partly due to their innate understanding of the history of rock and their own place within it. It was also, however, partly due to the public image that was projected by the pictures of the band which adorned their first single and album releases... pictures which were created by Michael Spencer Jones.

In a five-year journey which began with a photo-shoot of an unknown band at Manchester's Out Of The Blue Studios in 1993, Michael Spencer Jones worked closely with Oasis to create a series of enduring images which adorned the band's first three albums and their accompanying singles.

Appearing in a strictly limited edition of 250 copies worldwide, Out of the Blue – The Oasis Photographs is a definitive portfolio collection which brings together Michael Spencer Jones' extraordinary photos of one of England's finest bands during what is often affectionately referred to as their 'golden years'. Many of the photographs in this collection are published here for the very first time.

Two years in the making, the portfolio collection is strictly limited to 250 copies worldwide and presents a once in a lifetime opportunity to own a piece of Oasis history. The portfolio comprises 10 original limited edition photographs of Oasis’ iconic sleeve artwork. Housed within a luxurious hand-made portfolio case each photograph is individually mounted, signed, numbered and ready to frame.

In addition to the 10 mounted and signed artworks there is included a signed 198 page large format book. As well as creating the photographs that adorned their artwork Michael travelled with the band and developed a closeness which resulted in him accumulating a vast archive of over 8,000 images.

This remarkable collection of photographs assembled in this limited edition book includes the out-takes from the album sessions as well as a host of images of Oasis at work and at play – rehearsing, recording in the studio, in performance, on tour and off duty. An illuminating and sometimes revealing text of over 12,500 words accompanies this collection of stunning images, revealing the stories behind the classic cover shots and providing a first hand insight into the life of Oasis and the making of a rock’n’roll legend.

Demand for the limited edition box set is expected to be high so order your copy now to avoid disappointment.
