This This Art 2 Tone Paperback



In 1979, Teflon met with Jerry Dammers and Horace Panter of The Specials at the Chrysalis A&R Dept, and was presented with a label sized small sketch which Jerry with help from Horace had designed the iconic figure of Walt Jabsco, the instantly recognisable man in a black suit, white shirt, black tie, pork pie hat, white socks and black loafers.

Teflon drew a large prototype artwork and soon after designed and illustrated the Nutty Dancer for the first single by Madness on the 2 Tone Records label.

He worked closely with production of photographer Chalkie Davies and designer Carol Starr of The Specials' album sleeves.

Teflon followed by designing many other 2 Tone graphics for record sleeves, posters, advertising and promotion.

This Art 2 Tone is the ultimate visual celebration of the influential late seventies record label, written and designed by the man who played his part in the creative development and design of the 2 Tone unique look: Teflon. Now, Teflon has opened his archives, showing this classic work and more, accompanied by stories of those bands connected with the label: The Specials, The Selecter, The Bodysnatchers, The Beat and Madness.
