The Sage Francis Collection: Souvenir Lyric Booklet + Show Brochure
These booklets were created for the original London show 'If A Girl Writes Off The World'. In 4 colours, only 500 were produced and this is the last handful.
Designed to look like much-doodled-upon school exercise books, these little brochures measuring 5.5" x 7" contain hand-written notes, credits, and complete illustrated lyrics from each of the tracks which inspired the pieces of the show:
Runaways, Crack Pipes, Different, Mermaids Are Seasluts, Hopeless, The Cure, Broken Wings, Climb Trees, Crumble, Runaways, Underbite Ben Finds God, Bridle, Black Sweatshirt, Eviction Notice, Personal Journalist.
Also featured in the show were pieces inspired by lines from Mourning Aftermath, Freestyle Confession - both from 'Sick Of Waging War' - and Majority Rule, from 'Road Tested'.
Over the years collectors have begun to source everything Sage-related and I've had these in my archive ever since the show. A chance comment on a Sage thread recently encouraged me to put these last 9 copies up for sale (I've kept one of each colour for my own archive) in the hope that they may find their way into the safe hands of the many Sage Archivists, Fans and Collectors who have grown alongside the great man himself in the years since the show.
Each one is signed.
These are small and light enough to send as a Large Letter so postage to the USA is £2.50, and to the UK, £1.70 (Royal Mail 2nd Class).
