Glasgow Print Studio is pleased to announce the launch of a major new series of screenprints by Alasdair Gray based on his original illustrations for Lanark.
Alasdair Gray has been working at Glasgow Print Studio on the production of a new series of six screenprints based on the original artwork for his ground-breaking novel, Lanark. His original pen and ink drawings became the starting point into which Alasdair was able to add and rearrange areas of drawing and text and re-imagine these works as screenprints in full colour. In the making of this superb and long talked about new series Alasdair has embraced new technology in working closely in collaboration with GPS Master Printers in both digital and screenprint to produce this superb series of vibrant and imaginative highly colourful images. This new suite of prints will be dispalyed alongisde a comprehensive body of print works and posters by Gray.
