Wait, Patiently – a ‘Welcome To The Pleasuredome’ No.1 advert (piece 1&2)

Lo Cole: “…the advertising was everywhere. The campaign was brilliantly orchestrated and bit by bit my artwork started to appear in press-ads in national newspapers and magazines and on massive billboards featuring sections or whole chunks of the illustrations.”

artist: Frankie Goes To Hollywood title: Welcome To The Pleasuredome format: 1/8 pg No.1 advert design: XLZTT illustration: Lo Cole cat. no: ZTT IQ 1 date: 20/10/84 art of notes: This was the first and second of 12 adverts that appeared in various music papers in the two weeks prior to the release of the album. Each piece contained a slice of the inside gatefold image by Lo Cole that would form the entire image if folded and placed together. Two pieces appeared each week, usually on different parts of a page or spread but I’ve put them together for each post relevant to the issue they appeared in.
