The Andy Summers Signature Edition of the Monochrom is about to hit the shelves. Created in cooperation with the former Police band member, the edition “represents a striking synergy of music and photography.” It is limited to 50 examples and is designed to complement a “signature” guitar from Fender.
According to Leica’s press release there’s a lot of legendary stuff to take in: “The photo collage that appears on both the camera and Fender guitar highlights stunning photographs from Summers’s collection including a man walking his horse into the ocean captured from a small boat in Montserrat, a striking photo of hooded individuals captured amongst rain and mist on Yellow Mountain in China, as well as an image of celebratory balloons that landed before Summers’s encore at a concert. Coupled with a glossy paint finish, silver chrome operational elements and a gorgeous red line engraving of Summers’s signature, the camera is truly a sight to behold.
The Signature Camera set includes a matching 35mm Summicron-M ASPH lens, a complementary Fender-designed strap and a black Oberwerth system bag.
The Leica Monochrom “Signature” limited edition is on sale now at Leica Stores and Boutiques for just £13,000 including VAT ($14,995 in the USA). Definitely one for the collectors.
