Limited edition prints

April 8, 2012

This range of prints has been created with the aim of attracting more positivity into your life. Its too easy to get bogged down with the weight of the world, so utilising a psychological process known as ‘anchoring’ I have created pieces which can be used to improve your emotional state. If you set aside a few minutes each day to stare into each print and remind yourself of all the wonderful things you have going on around you, the people that make you smile, the things in life that you love. In time this positive emotional state of mind can be extracted just by quickly glancing at the image.

Three of these prints are now on sale. And will be available either by contacting me, or through my new website which should be up and running in the next two weeks. More prints will be released in the next few months. Enjoy.

This was a much anticipated brief for me as I felt that with this would be something I could really sink my teeth into and come up with some creative solutions. The author needing the rebrand was John le Carré, a former political consul and intelligence agent for a British embassy, whose novels draw upon the wealth of knowledge gained from his profession, mainly focusing on espionage and political corruption.

I began researching and reading his books and other authors in a similar field so as to gain an insight to the demographic that I would be placing the new artwork. I wanted to produce something new for the author, something unlike anything he had used before (a challenge considering he has had some books rebranded branded over 20 times). I discovered that there is a film of his book “Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy” in production at the moment and thought that this would draw a lot of attention to John and his other books. I felt that a collectors edition set could potentially be a great idea as it would interest those that have followed le Carré for years possibly prompting them to buy these even if they already own other editions of the books. It would also target movie fanatics and collectors, and those who haven’t read the books. They would also make for great presents for people and would also be a nice celebration of the fantastic work le Carré has achieved in his career as an author.

So I set about making a prestigious set of book covers that promote the idea of luxury whilst not being over powering. I got an idea for the covers from a Blek le Rat limited edition set of prints that featured a black book with a simple gold foiled logo on. These looked really nice and prestigious, yet simple. So I created an icon set based on key elements within the book and used just those on the front cover, no title, no authors name, just icons. These were then foil pressed onto nice quality black card to give the desired look and feel.
