Alpha print from James Brown


There's an abundance of retro alphabet prints that we've featured of late, but this Alpha print from one of our favourites James Brown, goes one step further.

The striking 4 colour lithograph should prove invaluable in these days of telephone banking and such. The letters of the alphabet are accompanied with their appropriate nautical flag and phonetic pronunciation. Hang it in pride of place for textbook enunciation worthy of a tweed-clad ex-field marshall.

£15 from the General Pattern Big Cartel store.

James Brown “Hats” Print

Combining our love of James Brown’s illustrations with our fondness for dapper clothing, in one item is James Brown’s “Hats” Print.

The screenprint uses just five colours, which adds to its retro look, and depicts 15 styles of hat spanning decades of fashion including a homberg, a bowler, a deerstalker and a pork pie hat. There are only 140 prints with each one signed and numbered by the artist.

The “Hats” print costs £95 from Tinsmiths.
