New Greeting Cards are needed! Art & Hue’s new “The Avengers” releases help celebrate Diana Rigg’s impending 80th birthday

Art & Hue Avengers Greeting Cards.


It’s no state secret that Art & Hue likes the cult 1960s British TV show The Avengers, as evidenced by the large pop art collection of stylish art prints featuring the show’s characters.

Starring Diana Rigg as Mrs Emma Peel, and Patrick Macnee as John Steed, prints from the pop art collection have been displayed at the BFI at a pop-up exhibition, and is now on permanent display at Elstree Studios where the show was filmed in the 1960s.

With Diana Rigg’s 80th birthday coming up in July, Art & Hue has been inspired to create eight stylish greeting cards featuring reworked images of Emma Peel and John Steed.

An official collaboration with Studiocanal, all cards are available to purchase individually, as well as in groups, and come in A6 size with envelopes.

Printed on carbon-captured papers from sustainable sources, the all-purpose cards are ideal for any occasion – birthdays, congratulations, anniversaries, or simply for a fan of classic television.

Art & Hue produces a massive line in pop art collections, with a football-inspired Top Trumps line recently joining Audrey HepburnCarry OnBritish Film NoirFrom Stage to ScreenHammer HorrorJoan CollinsJoanna LumleyJulie ChristieThe King of Carnaby StreetMod HairBeat FilmsSchool for ScoundrelsThe Wicker Man, and Thunderbirds– and more in the pipeline.
