This is one of the best examples of the 70s album art era and is an enduring image of New York City. This vision of the New York skyline shows the World Trade Center twin towers depicted as egg cartons…back then this skyline seemed eternal. Limited edition.
"Beach Towels" limited edition lithograph
Very limited and very high demand for this highly collectible Paul McCartney signed lithograph. Originally issued in 2005, Paul only signed the first 100 pieces in the edition (out of 200 total). These pieces quickly sold out and have been unavailable until now when Paul signed some additional copies. These are available for a very limited time. Originally painted by Sir Paul in 1990, "Beach Towels" is one of the artworks that Paul painted on Long Island. It is based on the sensations of a sunny morning on the beach.
