Larry Rostant’s portraits of Jimmy Edgar for DJ magazine

They broke the mould when they made this issue’s cover star Jimmy Edgar.

Larry Rostant's portrait of Jimmy Edgar is psychedelic, freaky, funky — and that’s not just his music. With a life well lived that’s reflected in the extraordinary scope of his albums and DJ sets, he’s not afraid to be different — and celebrates that difference.

A celebration of creativity, freedom and diversity is something that dance music should be about, but is something all too often lost in the chase for filthy lucre. Jimmy’s a star like they used to make, someone with something to say, and it seems that now more of us are listening than ever.

The Russian Ballet Collection

In one of the most ambitious film restoration projects of the century The Russian Ballet Collection is the culmination of a unique, 10-year-plus assignment by RTRWorldwide to remaster and reveal classic Russian ballet productions, and their unparalleled Soviet-era stars, to a wider audience.

Designer Bruno Tilley, represented by Artist Partners, was commissioned on this special mission with the challenge of branding and designing the collection’s packaging.

In a way of enticing a new generation to these old loved classics, he asked fellow Artist Partners illustrator Sharon Pinsker to get involved and the results are stunning.

The collection features 5 DVDs: Giselle, Swan Lake , Don Quixote, Spartacus and The Nutcracker.

Each cover illustrates a dancer from the ballet depicted perfectly in Sharon’s romantic figurative style.

As a whole the DVD set look fabulous and would make a perfect collectors item for any ballet lover. The Ballet Bag obviously agree with us as they have the collection listed under “Five Xmas Gift Ideas” on their website

Sharon’s illustrations have been so well received that the Telegraph has opened a competition with the chance to win a full set of the limited edition prints. The prize draw runs until the 31st January so it is definitely worth entering!

There is more in-depth information about the restoration project in The Telegraph
