(Brighton): Self-published, 2006. SIGNED by the photographer. From Ian Dickson's 'Collector's Series'; a range of handmade box sets, each title containing seven hand-printed images in signed mounts; offered in Standard, Digital or DeLuxe (best) edition. 'Notre Dame' seven silver gelatine, hand-printed, photographic prints of the Pistols at the recording of their "No Fun" TV Special filmed at the Notre Dame Assembly Hall, in Soho, London on the 15th of November, 1976. The gig was set up to be filmed for Janet Street-Porter's London Weekend Show. The audience included Shane MacGowan, Joe Strummer, Toyah Wilcox, Poly Styrene, TV Smith, Siouxsie, Jamie Reid, Vivienne Westwood (who danced on stage unaware that the gig was being filmed), and also, one Nancy Spungeon. This is the superior De Luxe edition which uses fibre-based prints (instead of resin-coated), in hinged archival mounts (instead of standard mounts). Each print is signed by the photographer on the mount. This is copy no.4 of an unspecified edition number (perhaps fewer than 15 examples), the series now having been discontinued by the publisher due to production costs and time constraints. Housed in an illustrated clamshell box (charmingly home-made by Dickson himself) with a numbered certificate affixed to the underside of the lid. The highly individual cover art is by famed cartoonist/illustrator Ray Lowry and a short but entertaining biography of the photographer 'Hired Gun' (also with Lowry-designed cover) completes the attractive package. Minor wear to box. A fine copy. Ian Dickson has been photographing rock stars since 1972 and his work has appeared in Disc, Record Mirror, New Musical Express, Sounds, Vox, Mojo, Q, Rolling Stone and elsewhere. His first exhibition was in London in 1992 and several successful European shows followed. In 1994, a selection of his work was shown at the MTV Awards in Berlin, at the Brit Awards at Alexandra Palace, and at the World Music Awards in Monte Carlo and Copenhagen. A feature on his portfolio was published in the March 1995 issue of Q magazine and in August that year, he was recognised by the 'Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum' who included his famous Rod Stewart 'pyjama' portrait; this was followed by an Eric Clapton and a Muddy Waters portrait, added in February 2000.
