Chase and Wonder Royal Festival Hall print

Chase and wonder

The print by Chase and Wonder celebrates some of the special quirks of the Royal Festival Hall

If the name Chase and Wonder sounds familiar, they're the duo behind the Lady's and Gentleman's A To Zs we featured a little while back which used detailed, retro styled illustrations to decorate each letter of the alphabet. This print uses the same principle but bases its illustration on the name of the building. For example, you get Abram Games's Festival of Britain logo for A, the Festival being the reason the Hall was built in 1951, while the O is illustrated by the Royal Festival Hall's 7866 pipe organ.   

A2-sized, and limited to 100 copies, the print costs £100.

Gentleman’s and Lady’s A – Z by Chase and Wonder

Chase and wonder
Looking for some old-fashioned elegance? You could take your cue from Chase and Wonder's Gentleman's and Lady's A – Z prints.

Alongside retro typography, each illustrates some of the paraphernalia attached to being a true gent or lady. The gentleman's print, for example, runs from automobile to a zamburak, via a gramophone, moustache and top hat. Meanwhile, the lady's print includes lipstick, a corset and heels. A bit of gender stereotyping maybe, but done by designers David Aspinall and Faye Pearce with their tongue firmly in their cheek. 

The prints are limited to 200 copies and cost £60 each.
