Description

London Skyline: 'The Industrial Skeletons of Hackney' Illustrated poster.

Size Guide: A5: 5.8 x 8.3in | A4: 8.27 x 11.69in | A3: 11.69 x 16.5in | A2: 16.5 x 23.4in | A1: 23.4 x 33.1in
Fine art Giclee Prints on 300gsm thick paper. I love this, as the archival inks enhance the colours, on light texture. (see last photo)

The Gas holders of Hackney:

On the train while passing over Regent's canal through the gritty back lanes of Hackney, I have always gazed in wonder at these mammoth ghostly gas holders that dominate the skyline looking specially magical at sunset.

As a graphic designer, I knew they would make for a sharp striking visual, and I love how this composition has turned out.

In the 200 years that the UK has been using gas power, the country has got used to the distinctive sight of "gasometers".
These gas holders have stored coal gas (town gas) and later natural gas for the UK's urban areas, but now all but a handful are obsolete. These industrial iconic structures are at a risk of demolition.

Though they are now defunct, it's undeniable that they continue to play a part in British culture. For artists they have a dystopian edge. Making for gritty backdrops in shows like Luther.

As well as the uniqueness of their outline, the gas holders are a testament to Britain's role in creating the Industrial Revolution.

In big gas-hungry cities the holders would go up and down daily. Filled in quiet times during the day, in the evening the levels would sink back down as gas was used to light and heat homes.
Christopher Costelloe, director of the Victorian Society, says it's that evocative movement that people like. "It reflects the beating of a human heart on a city scale, they were a reminder of a city's vitality."

Today we can see a sort of revival, trying to make gasholders hip. There is a 'Gasholder park' at King's Cross. Apartments built within these metal frames are selling at premium and frankly exorbitant prices. But then again, who would not love living within a part of Britain's industrial history ?

FAQs

Royal Mail gives a tracking number with every International delivery. This tracking is updated at various check points.

First checkpoint- When it leaves UK and reaches the destination country.
The next update in tracking will only happen once the parcel has gone through and cleared by customs. This could take anywhere between 5- 20 days depending on the country. So if the tracking has not updated in the meantime, your item is probably in queue at customs.
The next tracking update will happen when the item has come out of custom centre and reaches the local Post Office for delivery.

I cannot predict how long an international delivery can take. For example a parcel to France has taken 7 days, and in another time 30 days!
You can get the perfect sized frames at John Lewis. A4/ A3/ A2 with and without mounts. You can also get the prints framed at a local framer. The reason I don't ship frames is because the weight increases the price of shipping exponentially and no guarantee of non breakage. Since these are fairly standard size prints, it works out better to get the framing done at your end.
The word Giclée ("g-clay"), is derived from the French verb gicler meaning "to squirt or spray". It a fine art digital printing process combining pigment based inks with 100% cotton paper to achieve prints of superior archival quality, that will not fade for more than 70 years.

The process involves squirting or spraying microscopic dots of pigment-based ink onto high quality art paper or canvas. The image is colour corrected to attain the closest possible match to the original work if required.

In short- Matte prints are brilliant, but Giclee is special.
