Instead, it produces lovely Giclee prints and organises events, such as the Amwell Print Fair taking place next month.

Held in a currently dormant second-hand specialist art bookshop in Angel, north London, the fair will showcase limited-edition Giclee prints by 20 illustrators, designers, photographers and artists.

As is befitting to its pre-Christmas timing, all the works will be on sale, alongside limited-edition t-shirts by Harry Bix and a number of hand-stitched books.

Printer of Dreams says, ‘We have chosen artists who showcase the incredible variety of art currently being produces using the medium of print.

‘In the true democratising sprit of the printing press, this event is a celebration of great affordable art’.

The lovely flyer has been designed by Edward Tuckwell.

Amwell Print Fair takes place from 17.30 – 21.30 on 2 December at Amwell Book Company, 53 Amwell Street, London EC1R
