Illustrator, graphic designer and former ad man, Bob Gill, has created six new hand coloured silkscreen prints at Print Club London's Dalston print studio...

Gill was in London for D&AD's 50th birthday celebrations last year and spent time at Print Club creating the six new works, each printed in editions of just 12 and hand numbered and signed by the artist.

"We have been huge fans of Bob and his work and were really excited when he agreed to work with us producing some new prints," says Print Club's Kate Newbold-Higginson. "Bob joined us in our studio where he spent a couple of days hand finished his silk screen prints with watercolour, making each one completely original and unique."

The six prints are priced at £850 each and will be exhibited from March 29 to April 11 at the Print Club Gallery, 10-28 Millers Avenue, London, E8.

CR in print
The March issue of CR magazine celebrates 150 years of the London Underground. In it we introduce a new book by Mark Ovenden, which is the first study of all aspects of the tube's design evolution; we ask Harry Beck authority, Ken Garland, what he makes of a new tube map concept by Mark Noad; we investigate the enduring appeal of Edward Johnston's eponymous typeface; Michael Evamy reports on the design story of world-famous roundel; we look at the London Transport Museum's new exhibition of 150 key posters from its archive; we explore the rich history of platform art, and also the Underground's communications and advertising, past and present. Plus, we talk to London Transport Museum's head of trading about TfL's approach to brand licensing and merchandising. In Crit, Rick Poynor reviews Branding Terror, a book about terrorist logos, while Paul Belford looks at how a 1980 ad managed to do away with everything bar a product demo. Finally, Daniel Benneworth-Grey reflects on the merits on working home alone. Buy your copy here.

I was about to say how much I fancied the soup and flowers one but then got to the end of the article and saw the price.

£850! Sadly I don't have that much money lying around. Any chance that's a typo and they're actually a much more affordable £85?
