Autographed Frank Zappa LP

One of my favorite clients brought me this Frank Zappa album cover signed by all the players. He wanted to be able to see the back as well but didn’t want the gatefold open. Not a problem. I built a shadow box lined with red silk moire and added an accent channel with “Z” zags. The album cover was floated using acrylic clips. I cut an opening behind it to expose the artwork on the back and mounted a piece of hand marbled paper that echoed Frank’s smoke hiding the back of the frame with a hand painted gold rope moulding.  The third photo shows the red silk casting a glow on the back of the record sleeve.
