After what he describes as “a somewhat long and tortuous journey“, artist Andrew Skilleter has launched a new Collection of a mug and coaster featuring a retro selection of his Doctor Who Target Books cover art – but they will only be available for a limited time.
Relive the magic of the late 1970s and earlier 1980s of the Doctor Who Target novelisations with these retro Mug and Coaster gift sets, each set inspired by cover art by Andrew for different books, including An Unearthly Child, The Abominable Snowmen and Destiny of the Daleks.
This Collection will only be available until late September 2020, so if you’re in a nostalgic mood – and, let’s face it, who isn’t right now? – you’d better get your order in soon.
“Unfortunately, I rely on the print company to fulfil the orders for me and sadly they are ceasing this service on the 1st October 2020,” Andrew advises.
