Towards a New Britain by Blue Print

Towards a new
With the 60th anniversary of the Festival of Britain happening this year, here's another piece of art linked to the festival. This Towards a New Britain print by Blue Print uses the Abram Games designed emblem of the Festival and sets it behind the outlines of a hopeful looking couple - perhaps studying the future promised by the festival. 

It's just one of several prints produced by the artist Donald Short which relate to the Festival (you may remember his work from the Metroland print we featured a little while back). The distinctive colouring is made by using the cyanotype process - the blue print of architectural designs.

Produced as a limited edition of 100 copies, the print costs £35.
