Joe Satriani, the “Silver Surfer”

This custom encompasses more than 27 years of Silver Surfer and Joe Satriani history...

This custom encompasses more than 27 years of Silver Surfer and Joe Satriani history...

The focus of this Silver Surfer/Joe Satriani custom is the original relase 45 “Surfing with the Alien” off of the album with the same name. 

The artwork for the album, released August 1987 was “borrowed” from Marvel Comics’ issue #1 June of 1982 Silver Surfer, page 6, panel 1.  No permission was ever granted for this although the album was re-issued in August 2007 for its 20th anniversary.  That  Legacy Edition artwork is displayed with the 45 and the comic is on the left surrounded by the USPS first day of issue stamps and postmarks commemorating Marvel Comics.

On the right, a photo of Joe Satriani is autographed and displayed with a Limited Edition “Silver Surfer” guitar pin.

In sleeves on the back you will find each item’s provenance as well as a duplicate comic to read.  No other gathering of entertainment fine art will you find to match this History in Vogue original and one of a kind.  It is the pinnacle of assemblage.

Everything is contained within a custom-built wood frame and protected by conservation glass.

We build customs occasionally by special request.  We have several pieces already finished and ready for purchase at www.nwlimited.com so come claim your piece of History in VogueTM!

Hanging with the Coast Guard

Hanging with the Coast Guard

Thanks, Tony, for these photos of your new Dead Reckoning the Pacific Graveyard shipwreck chart hanging in your office at the United States Coast Guard Regional Exam Center in Portland, Oregon.
Tony has to say:
“Hello Bill,
Well I got my Dead Reckoning piece hung up in my office here with the Coast Guard Regional Exam Center in Portland; it looks really awesome and I am very pleased with it. Thanks! You did a great job on it.

I have attached two photos of the piece on my wall; they aren’t the best photos as my office is some what small and hard to get a good shot, but at least you can get an idea of what it looks like; everyone here really likes it as well.

It was good meeting you and I hope to get down to Astoria one of these days again and will try to look you up if I can; you are also welcome to come here to my office in Portland if you would like any time.

Thanks again,
Tony Sellers”

Oct. 25, 1906: Wreck of the Peter Iredale

On October 25, 1906, the bark Peter Iredale was wrecked on the Oregon coast at Clatsop Spit near

Warrenton attempting a Columbia River entrance.
The grounded ship was unsalvageable.
Over a century later, only her rusting bones remain.

Peter Iredale revealed by the storms of December. Photo taken January 2008 near Ft. Stevens

Peter Iredale in January 2008 near Ft. Stevens. The wreck is one of several hundred casualties of the Pacific Graveyard and appears as the most familiar landmark on "Dead Reckoning of the Pacific Graveyard" shipwreck chart by NW Limited...History in VogueTM.

 
Oft-photographed, endlessly visited by tourists, the Iredale’s weathered skeleton is testament both to the forces of nature and folly of man. 

There are countless more like her that have disappeared, shipwrecked forever by virtue of lucky salvage or the relentless pounding of waves, wind, tide and time.

Dead Reckoning of the Pacific Graveyard” documents these, lifting them from conscious memory, and marking them in historic record.
Anecdotes from each wreck are provided, stories which are entwined in the foundation of a region rich with maritime activity.
As the newest and most complete shipwreck chart of the SW Washington, NW Oregon coast and lower Columbia River, it is also the most aesthetically-minded.
Printed on high-quality paper, the lithograph (detail shown below) is built to stand the test of time both as a collectible, historic tribute and an artful display.
