Brooklands has been at the centre of British motor racing and aero industries for more than 100 years, and its history is being celebrated in new limited edition screenprints from John Patrick Reynolds.
Brooklands describes itself as “the birthplace of British motorsport, aviation and home of Concorde” and John has created two screenprints, now available in a brand new format, printed on lovely 300gsm Fabriano paper, each 60cmx x 44cms in size.
Signed and numbered out of 100 by John Patrick Reynolds, for an introductory period, they are at the price of just £99 unframed or £149 framed in a plain black wooden frame.
Based in London, John was the first screenprinter to get permission from Britain’s top comic publisher, DC Thomson, to use images from its archive of British comic characters from The Beano’s Dennis the Menace, The Bash Street Kids and Minnie the Minx to The Dandy’s Desperate Dan and the Sunday Post’s Oor Wullie and The Broons.
He’s also the only screenprinter in the UK to work with French publisher Editions Albert Réné to make screenprints of its characters Asterix, Obelix, Getafix and Ideefix, not forgetting the dog Dogmatix.
