First Great Weston print from Let Them Hang

The great people at Let Them Hang are releasing a very special print edition to commemorate the Screen One printing house on Jamaica Steet and the dedicated work of the main print man there Paul.
The print looks excellent, a China Mike based drawing of the building covered in trademark images of work from the artists associated with LTH and Screen One. Those include: Dicy, Paris, Xenz, Sickboy, Mr. Jago, Nick Walker, Banksy, Ximl and Mau Mau. 100 of the edition have been further hand-finished by some of the artists and these went on sale last week at the Dreweatts Urban Art Auction Show in the Ultralounge at Selfridges. As blogged earlier, this is a touring show and is coming down here to Paintworks next week.
I got shown round Screen One last year when picking up a canvas. Really interestng place, very tall and narrow and covered floor to ceiling in printing paraphenalia and imagery. Bit of a treasure trove of Bristol steet art and print history really. I remember seeing Nick Walker's screens for the Moona Lisa print lying around, and some tasty Xenz APs whilst there.

Knowingly a bit late with this post but suffice to say that there are still 100 of these prints left in the edition (available from June 1st) and possibly a special 'Bristol' edition coming out for us folks here in Bristol which I might go for.
