LRB Cover Prints
LRB Cover Prints
For 18 years, Peter Campbell’s playful and often quirky watercolours were a much loved feature of the magazine. As Diana Souhami wrote in Peter’s obituary in the Guardian:
‘Each fortnight from 1996 onwards, Peter did a cover illustration for the LRB. He came up with a seemingly infinite array of unpredictable images: a yacht and a starfish, a tram, two knickerbocker glories, a game of dominoes, a man walking past a lighted window at night, umbrellas in the rain and a plug in a wall socket (switched to on). The immediate freshness, colour, playfulness and surprise of these covers belied their technical skill, erudition and command of detail and artistic reference.’
You can now purchase high quality prints of Peter Campbell’s covers from the London Review of Books from 2000–2011. Each print is reproduced on demand and printed using the giclée process (giclée means ‘spraying of ink’). The result is a print which preserves the detail of the original with remarkable fidelity. They are made on Hannemuhle rag matt paper (acid free) using light-fast inks.
Prints are available in two sizes:
|Small (30.5cm x 40.6cm / 12" x16" / A3):||£54|
|Large (42cm x 59.4cm / 16.5" x 23.4" / A2):||£67|
They will be mailed to you unframed and carefully packaged. Shipping is charged per item — £8 within the UK, £13 within Europe, and £18 to the rest of the world. Because of the different shipping method, prints cannot be combined in a single order with books; if you would also like to order books today, please place them in a separate order.
To help you choose your print, the range of images currently available have been arranged by category and by year.
