    Announcement    THIS SHOP WILL BE CLOSING PERMANENTLY AT THE END OF 2019.
    Thank you to all my customers.
    Sadly continued health problems make it harder to be sure I can handle orders in a timely fashion so I'm closing now while the going is good. I'm going to continue to sell my own work, but at this stage I haven't decided how. I*'ll post an announcement here before the shop disappears for good.

    The early years of the 20th Century were the heyday of so-called ‘commercial art’. An explosion in graphic design drew on all the current trends of the art world and translated them into bold arresting images. Now you can buy copies of some of these wonderful images to display in your home. Created from the beginning with the intent of widespread distribution, the reproduction prints you can buy in this shop are as close as you can get to the look and feel of the historic originals at the time of production.

    Despite being reproductions they have been produced with the same care and attention as my own original art work using archival quality materials. They are made by carefully scanning and restoring original copies of out of copyright images. The sources vary widely - old photographs from junk shops and boot sales, old post cards, advertising ephemera, digital archives. From my original focus on commercial graphic art I have now expanded the shop to include a wide range of material from Japanese woodblock prints to shipping line postcards, from 1950s comic books to 19th century engravings.

    The shop categories are based on the content of the image. To help you find things I've set out some more information in the About section.

    Even if you don’t find anything today, make sure you bookmark this site and come back frequently, because I'm finding new images to add all the time. If you have any specific requirements, please get in touch as I still have many images as yet unloaded or if I can't help immediately I can search for what you need.

    Frequently asked questions
    Can I make further copies from the prints I buy?

    All the images I sell are public domain or otherwise out of copyright. However most incorporate significant work by me to restore and prepare them for printing. When you buy from me therefore you are only buying the physical print without any rights to further reproduction. If you want to use the images in other ways, for example in leaflets or promotional material, please contact me first.

    Wholesale availability

    You can resell the prints in the shop, including in a retail setting. However if you want to do this on any significant scale, it would be in your interest to contact me first, since I am happy to offer discounts on bulk orders.

    Can I display the prints I buy in restaurants, hotels or similar locations?

    You are at liberty to display prints from the shop in any location or venue. As with wholesale availability, if you want to do this on any significant scale, please get in touch and I will work with you to identify suitable images. I am happy to offer discounts on bulk orders.

    Custom and personalised orders

    Almost all the items in the shop are available in other sizes - just ask. I provide mounts sized to fit standard frames in either inches or cm. If you want a different mount size, again just ask.

    I can also provide mounts with multiple images. I have some examples in the shop but any combination is possible - if it can be shipped I can make it.

    Finally, if you have a particular image in mind, I have hundreds if not thousands waiting to be listed and acess to many other collections, so pleae let me know what you are looking for.

    Do your prices include VAT or equivalent sales taxes?

    No. This business has a turnover that falls below the threshold required for registering for VAT in the UK. That doesn't mean however that these taxes are not applicable when shipping to another country. If you are purchasing from a country outside the EU that has its own sales tax, you may be charged these taxes before the package can be delivered. The level at which sales taxes kick in will vary from country to country. Any such charges for customs clearance/import duty are the customers responsibility.

    So long as the UK remains in the EU no VAT is due on sales from this shop within the EU.

    All shipments outside the EU are accompanied by a CN22 customs clearance form showing the full value of the goods (excluding shipping costs)

    Why don't you offer Free Shipping?

    There is of course no such thing as free shipping. I could include the costs to me in the listed price, but many of my customers buy more than one item so would end up in the end paying more since I would no longer be able to refund any overpayment. I think it is fairer to you my customers not to bundle shipping costs into the price you pay.

    I do not take a profit on shipping. The price you pay is the cost to me plus a flat charge for packaging materials, etc. This is currently around £2.00. I refund everything you pay above that unless the amount due is trivial.
