More about Magne Furuholmen
Many of you will know Magne Furuholmen as the keyboardist and songwriter with the Norwegian band A-ha, but what you might not know is that in tandem with his career as a musician Magne has maintained a life as an artist, having first exhibited in 1989. For the last 10 years he has developed an interest in the use of words and language, and this work has naturally developed into Alpha-Beta, a series of prints of all the letters of the alphabet, along with some Norwegian specific characters.
The original Alpha-Beta etchings were first published by Magne’s London gallery Paul Stolper, and have been exhibited worldwide. The full series have now been reproduced to form this highly collectible and accessible box set.
About the box set

Reproduced using high screen lithographic print on extra thick silk postcard stock. It is supplied in a hand finished custom box along with a special one off multiple by Magne, featuring a Nabokov quote.
Printed, manufactured and produced in Britain in collaboration with Magne Furuholmen, Paul Stolper and Polite.
