Historic Mike McCartney art prints announced to accompany book
October 26, 2021
Each print has been verified and signed by the photographer and created to meet museum standard quality. For anyone interested in detail, the paper is 100% cotton rag and created with Archival Giclée using K3 Lightfast inks. It is a large format size, measuring 61cm x 61cm. Not only does it come with a signed Certificate of Authenticity, but there is also the option of framing the print in a hardwood frame, which is protected with UV varnish.
In Mike McCartney’s highly anticipated book, Premier Liverpool, it brings together a multitude of previously unseen photographs and precious drawings, accompanied by a revealing commentary that sheds light on the photographs. Peter Kay wrote a foreword to the book, as did legendary bassist, producer and graphic designer Klaus Voormann. Included are handwritten letters from Stuart Sutcliffe and Sir Paul McCartney, reproduced in facsimile and pasted by hand into each book.
In an interview yesterday, where the BBC joined Mike on the roof of his old school to discuss the book, he described Liverpool in the 1960s as ‘a magical, vibrant and wonderful time’.
