Rob Jones White Stripes Under Amazonian Lights Uncut Postcard Set

For the recent Third Man Records Vault release of “Under Amazonian Lights” Rob Jones was asked to design a few elements for the box set: namely the graphics for the box itself, an enamel pin, DVD on body graphic, and a set of postcards highlighting the three South American dates from the 2005 tour. For these cards Rob thought it would be fun to continue documenting the globetrotting of the Tin Man and Dorothy as seen in the “Under Great White Northern Lights” set. Considering Brazil’s considerable primate population, it seemed appropriate to bring the winged monkeys into the mix.

For Record Store Day, Rob made a set of enlarged screen printed versions. He wanted to keep that version special for TMR and RSD so his copies are all uncut and editioned separately from their divided RSD counterparts. Both versions are printed on special linen paper to mimic antique postcards from days of thoughtful communications past.

Rob is signing these on the back and like the RSD ones, he’ll write a short missive in the last space or maybe draw an exhausted rabbit.

The print is 12 x 23 inches 2 color screen print and includes the 2005 Tour of Brazil: Manaus, Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paulo. Signed & numbered edition of 114.
