New Color Wheels of Popular Music and Songs

Creative house Dorothy just tipped us off to two new prints they releasing today. Called The Colour of Popular Music and Song, the two lithograph prints cleverly take the names of popular music artists and songs and assign corresponding colors to them.

The Colour of Popular Music includes the names of 154 bands (and artists), from the obvious Black Sabbath, Pink Floyd, Red Hot Chilli Peppers and Smashing Pumpkins to the more obscure Silver Apples, Black Flag and the Green Telescope.

The Colour of Song features the titles of a whopping 576 songs including classics like Billie Jean, Brown Sugar, Purple Rain, Fools Gold and Blue Monday to guilty pleasures like Mr. Blue Sky, Goldfinger and Pretty in Pink.

The Colour of Popular Music and The Colour of Song are available for purchase both as signed and stamped limited edition prints and as open edition prints.

You may remember Dorothy as the ones behind the famous logos stripped of their names series as well as the ones who created The Ultimate Song and Film maps. For music and design lovers, these seem like they’d be the perfect gifts.
