Print Club London has commissioned 50 screen prints inspired by globally iconic books such as Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, American Psycho, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz and more. You can see a selection of them in this story.
Print Club London, an acclaimed screen-printing studio, has famously worked with clients such as Elle, Vogue, Stella McCartney, Nike, and a range of others on a variety of projects.
In its 6th annual book-themed event to take place on October 27, 2017, the curators at Print Club have selected 50 out of 1,000+ submissions from a collection of established and emerging artists, designers, and illustrators. Without displaying the book title or name of the author, the artists created their screen prints after their favourite book-related quote, theme, or author.
The featured screen prints, all exclusively designed for Blisters, will be signed by the respective artists and on sale for £50 each. Here is a sneak peak of the limited-edition prints that could be yours at an event you don’t want to miss!
In this Wizard of Oz-inspired screen print, artist and director Cassandra Yap continues with her style of exploring the juxtaposition between dark and delicate subjects.
Cassandra, originally from Singapore, often pairs soft pin-up girls and butterflies with bold subjects such as skulls and lions.
Davey Podmore, the creative director of a design agency in Cambridgeshire, is no stranger to design competitions. Not only did Davey win a national competition and design a 50p for the 2011 London Olympics, but he also created a coin that is currently held at the British Museum.
Davey specialties include branding, illustration, and graphic design, and his 2017 Blisters feature is inspired by the Mr Men book Mr. Tickle.

Freelancer Oli Fowler’s screen print is a play on the 'Drink Me' bottle of Alice's Adventure's in Wonderland. In the children’s book, Alice follows a rabbit down a rabbit hole and finds a bottle on a table within a tiny house labeled 'Drink Me'. Curious Alice complies, only to find herself shrunk to 25 centimetres, yet able to adventure into the magical world of Wonderland.
Oli studied fashion and textiles at Central Saint Martins and received a BA in Graphic Design from Camberwell College of Arts. His artistic practice includes forms of graphic art and design, including illustration, printmaking, photomontage, and photography. Oli is keen to play around with patterns, textures, and photographs in order to create density within his images.
A Print Club London contributing artist, Ornamental Conifer – also known as Nicolai Sclater – produces work for anyone from exhibitions and private collectors to large brands on commercial products.
His style, expressed in his Blisters screen print feature 'Peter Pan,' often includes retro typography fonts with atypical backdrops.
Lucille Moore’s 2017 Blisters screen print is based off of the French novel and overnight sensation Bonjour Tristesse, which translates as 'Hello Sadness'.
In the novel written by Françoise Sagan, seventeen-year-old Cécile becomes involved in her father's complicated love life when she is unhappy with his choice of lover.
Moore’s work often includes illustrative works with character and reflects femininity, celebrates empowerment, and exposes vulnerability.
