Having worked on Bill Wyman's website logo, Ruth Rowland was delighted to be asked to work on his latest album - Back to Basics.
This is Bill Wyman's first solo album in the UK since 1982, and is stripped back, clean and accomplished. Ruth says "To reflect this approach, I kept it simple - working with pencil, I produced sheet after sheet of name and title script until the forms were fluid and relaxed, yet still legible. I’ve been working quite a bit with pencil recently and have enjoyed exploring its versatility as a lettering tool." This theme was continued on the album inlay with song titles drawn and fitted to the shape of Bill’s guitar, with matching script on the disc labelling and the single, What & How & If & When & Why.
