When we started to work on our annual Icon issue, our photo editor unearthed an image of Biggie smiling, captured by Colin Hawkins. We fell in love with it, and knew immediately that it would be the cover of FADER #73. We asked Seymour Chwast to help us out with the back cover, and he painstakingly hand-carved and hand-printed a woodblock portrait of BIG. Now, you can hang both depictions up on your wall! We offset printed posters of each cover in New York City. Both posters were produced in limited editions of 150. Head over to the FADER shop and grab one of each while you can! A portion of the proceeds from both prints will go to the Christopher Wallace Memorial Foundation.
