Justine Smith’s Money Map of the world can be read as a homage to the graphic design of money itself before you look for any political overtones. It’s an edition of 90 and has been screen prined on 330 gsm Somerset enhanced paper.

The four-day buyer’s fair also runs a concurrent programme of talks and events by artists, printmakers and collectors.

Talks are due to be held by printmakers such as Harland Miller, Albert Irvin, Anita Klein and Royal Academicians Norman Chris Orr, and Anne Desmet, while John Mackechnie and Marcus Rees Roberts will give insights into the print process.
