'Illegitimi Non Carborundum' is a wry mock-Latin phrase that translates as 'Don't Let The Bastards Grind You Down.' My art and design taste favours maximalist or minimalist approaches; this piece is the latter. My approach was to create bespoke Roman Monumental Capitals and present them as if lovingly carved and gilded in marble into a magnificent ancient monument. Known as the 'Eternal Letter', Roman Monumental Capitals embody classical beauty, grace and dignity, creating a pleasing tension between the medium and the message. An edition of 150 available in one colourway, Metallic Gold on Frost White, initialled and numbered.

Die-Stamped Warm Gold Ink on 540 gsm Frost White Colorplan Paper. This mini-print measures 175 mm X 105 mm (approximately 6.9 X 4.1 inches.) Edition of 150, initialled & numbered by the artist. Please note these prints are handmade by one of the best printers in the UK. I have pushed this beautiful printing technique to the absolute limit. If you look very closely, you'll notice that slight imperfections are part of the charm of this artwork. I am delighted with the results, each print is unique, but if you're looking for perfect printing, something else might be for you.
