About This Item

Available to pre-order as an A1 poster (£15) or A1 limited edition print (£100), signed and numbered by the artist.

Design Inspiration

Time is the main theme of our poster. The jewel is filled with 100 years worth of historical and news stories and events from 1916 to 2016 - from Women getting the Vote, the National Health Service established to the First text message sent. The 100 years is broken down into Centuries > Decades > Years > Months > Weeks > Days > Hours > Minutes > Seconds. The jewel references the very distinct typographic tittle (look it up!) of the iconic Johnston typeface.
