Fans of The Smiths and Morrissey have long gazed at the group's album artwork, and now they can view it all in person during the final days of These Days L.A.'s "I Started Something I Couldn't Finish: The Smiths & Morrissey Collection." Donated by an anonymous collector, the nearly dozen 40x40 posters include those for Smiths singles "Shoplifters of the World Unite," "Girlfriend in a Coma" and "Sheila Take a Bow"; the band's tours; their final studio album, 1987's Strangeways, Here We Come, and Morrissey's debut solo record, 1988's Viva Hate. They feature iconic images of Elvis, Truman Capote and Andy Warhol actress Candy Darling, and were originally displayed in British subways and independent record stores for promotional purposes. The collection also features additional unframed posters, VHS tapes, Morrissey bobblehead dolls, a Ouija board and back issues of two zines — Morri'Zine and Louder Than Bombas: On Raza, Morrissey and The Smiths — some of which are for sale.
