There can be few Deep Purple fans unaware of the work of Pete Frame and his famous rock family trees over the years. I've been an admirer since the early days of Zigzag magazine, where many of the trees first appeared and the DPAS also has an authorised online version of the Deep Purple tree on our site.
Pete Frame has now set up his own website to develop the format in the digital arena, and one of the projects will be to make archival reproductions of his work. Amongst the first to be done is the Deep Purple tree, the complete version as featured in his original book (NOT the slimmed down one used by Polydor).
The print run is limited to just 100 copies, printed at 60x80cm on the finest heavy weight archival paper. Each print is personally signed by Pete Frame. They're not cheap, but they will be very collectable and look terrific hanging on the wall (I was going to say framed up...).
The home page of the site is: www.familyofrock.com
