Followers and admirers of the pop legend Prince have been waiting for an artwork that expresses the songs of their idol. In January 2019 the graphic artwork called “Paisley Prince Songbook” was launched. Designer Patrick Moriarty drew the design by hand in 2018. The responses from people who have bought the design have been unanimously positive. To launch the design, a competition was held on numerous social media platforms. People had to guess the names of the songs and albums referenced in the design. The design has at least 20 references to Prince’s songwriting. These include: purple raindrops to symbolize the song “Purple Rain”, lips to symbolize the song “Kiss”, a peace sign to represent the song “Sign O’ The Times”, a number 7 to represent the album title “7”, crying doves to represent the song “When Doves Cry” and paisley symbols to symbolize the song “Paisley Park”. Can you guess the rest?
Here are some reactions from customers who wrote online reviews of their Paisley Prince Songbook products:

Renee Nugent-Foster of Southend UK wrote: I have several of Patrick’s beautiful paisley prints. I have a bag, cushion and headscarf all in different designs, so when I received my Paisley Prince card I felt really lucky. The designs are fantastic and are versatile enough to be printed on different fabrics. I would urge you to invest in something a little different.
