As we reported in November last year, Airside is shutting up shop. Now the studio is planning to sell loads of its work, from prints and canvases that have been hanging in the studio, to archived T-shirts designed by the likes of Mode 2, Mr Scruff, Pete Fowler and, of course Fred Deakin…

Yes, the Airside Closing Down Sale will take place in Airside’s studio at 339 Upper Street in London on Saturday February 18 between 2pm and 6pm. At 3pm there will be an auction of rare and collectible items that include no less than 29 framed prints from 14 years of creativity. All are one-off rarities such as screenprints for Lemon Jelly (one shown, above), Impotent Fury, The Face, and It’s Pop It’s Art – as well as personal work by various Airside employees.

Also to be auctioned are the archive copies of 40 T-shirts created for the Airside T-shirt Club.

“Also on general sale will be our archive of Airside-designed T-shirts, CDs, vinyl, books, posters and plastic toys,” says Airside’s Fred Deakin. “We’ll be selling / giving away lots of our technical kit and various books from our reference library as well as show reels and postcards; there will also be tea and cake for all.”

Here’s the full flyer for the one-off event:
