It's eye-catching from a distance, but the real appeal of the Fontana Modern Masters print by James Pardey is in the detail.

This is op art, 70s-style. Launched in 1970, the Fontana Modern Masters were a series of pocket guides on eminent writers, philosophers and thinkers. Great if you loved deep thinking, but even better if you loved great graphic design, with each book offering up abstract paintings in bright colours, along with distinctive, rounded typography.

Each could be described as a work of art in itself and together, the entire 48-book series is certain to brighten up your room, as well as giving it a retro twist. The poster is printed on high-quality 200gsm paper and will fit a standard 50 x 70cm frame.
