Original promotional poster announcing the release of 'Holidays In The Sun' (October 1977).

Offset colour litho. 70x71cm.

In what has become a classic example of Reid's use of Situationist détournement, the comic strip used for the poster was appropriated from a Belgian tourist brochure. The speech bubbles were retained but instead of exclaiming the wonder of Belgium, they are replaced with the song lyrics. The Belgian Travelling Service issued an angry letter to Virgin Records, and Reid was forced to destroy the original artwork in front of their solicitor.

Faint lower right corner dampstain, with associated surface rippling to paper; minor wear along upper right edge; o/w Near Fine.
