Vintage-style Brighton Line prints by Sean Sims


We have featured Sean Sims in the past, but these new vintage-style Brighton Line prints are more than worth a mention.

They are illustrative travel posters, not unlike the kind of thing you would see from the '40s to the '70s, but particularly in the 1960s. It's an ongoing series, but there are a number available from launch – two are pictured above, two more over the page and more at the retail site.

All are A2 giclee editions, and are currently on sale for £50 each. They will also be on show throughout the Saturdays and Sundays in May (11am – 6pm) at the Yarn & Glue Open House as part of the Brighton Festival.

We showed you the Sean Sims limited edition alphabet print last year. Now the letters are available individually, as the Play Time card range

Executed in an early 70s-style, each card is based around a different letter: from the brightly patterned 'K' for 'Kettle' to the monster towering over the metropolis for 'M', or the old-fashioned gent clutching an umbrella for 'U'.  

Ideal as birthday cards for kids or for adults who haven't quite grown-up yet, the cards cost £2 each.
