The Eye Test Charts by Wasted and Wounded

The Eye Test Charts are another series of music-themed prints by Wasted and Wounded, the designers behind the 1960s and Punk Distilled prints.

The designs are based on the classic eye chart, developed by Dutch ophthalmologist Herman Snellen in 1862, but instead of a random sequence of letters, the diminishing letters pay homage to some of the greatest musical acts of all time. Pictured here is the Velvet Underground design, which consists of band members' names and the band name with a black banana in reference to their iconic album cover. For David Bowie, the design lists his alter-egos, whereas the Elvis and James Brown designs reference their titles as King of Rock n Roll and Godfather of Soul respectively. Each design is limited to 100 copies and costs £45 with UK delivery.
