Best Christmas present in Brixton: the Bowie prints are on sale!

We’re very happy to say that the very special limited edition Bowie print is now on sale, just in time for Christmas! It will make an excellent present to any Brixtonite or Bowie fan. You can buy the print for £600 at bit.ly/bowieprint or at the B£ Cafe at 77 Atlantic Road.

The A3 print features the award-winning B£10 “David Bowie” note.

The edition of 300 – of which 250 are offered for sale – went into production in December 2015, with David Bowie’s approval.

The print has been produced by the note’s designers, This Ain’t Rock’n’Roll, together with Orion Security Print, the company responsible for printing the Brixton Pound notes.

The print is produced on the same diamond-patterned security paper as the circulation notes, and features several of their original features such as orange fluorescent ink and die-cut metallic & holographic foiling.

Both sides of the note are displayed, featuring Duffy’s iconic photograph of David Bowie in his Ziggy Stardust guise from the cover of Aladdin Sane, as well as a detail from the Nuclear Dawn mural on Brixton’s Coldharbour Lane.

Each print is titled ( –2016) in pencil, individually numbered in both black and metallic ink, and blind-stamped by the designers. The print will also be accompanied by a certificate of authenticity from the Brixton Pound.

All proceeds will go directly into the Brixton Fund, a grant scheme managed by the Brixton Pound to support community initiatives in the area.You can buy the print for £600 at bit.ly/bowieprint or at the B£ Cafe at 77 Atlantic Road.
